    So I applied a screen protector to the back of my iPhone 6s+ to protect it from scratches. Well it has a few bubbles in it and so I need to take it off. Problem is that it's stuck! I don't want to dig my nails or anything sharp into it because I don't want to scratch the paint. Any ideas? I was thinking of applying a little bit of gorilla glue/Loctite Super Glue to an edge and placing another screen protector on top of it. I'm hoping they will both peel off together?

    Get a piece of duct or scotch tape and use it to lift a corner.

    Unless you're Wolverine, you're not going to scratch the paint with your nails or plastic. So I'd say go for it.

    I've tried with my nail and it won't come up. Do you folks think that attaching another cheap screen protector with super glue and pulling it off will do the trick?

    How come you didn't want to just get a thin, clear case?

    Some heat from a hair dryer will loosen the glue

    Get underneath one of the corners with something thin and plastic, like a guitar pick etc. Unless you've bonded it down with something you shouldn't have, it surely can't be that difficult to peel off.

    Thanks folks. Decided against the glue and had my lady dig her long nails into the screen protector. Took her a minute but she finally got it to peel off. What a pain in the you know what... not doing that again. Got tired of using my Spigen Slim Armor and went with my Spigen clear bumper case. Looks so much better!
