    i have these weird marks underneath my MacBook screen protector that have a rippling effect, it looks like condensation but I am not sure.

    Could someone diagnose these marks, is it a defect with screen protector or not?

    Are you saying that all those splotches are under the screen protector - all over the screen?

    It appears to be moisture, maybe from cleaning the screen at the time of installing the screen protector.
    Did you add that very recently?
    I hope you can remove it without damaging the screen.

    (You didn't ask, but it looks like a poor product, or somebody just did not follow the installation procedure. I bet the screen was not completely dry when the "protector" was put in place.)

    Will the marks go away by themselves or will i have to remove them?

    Edit: I remembered i installed the protector in a steamy washroom, according to instructions on the packaging to remove dust.

    How long have you had that screen "protector" on your screen?

    If the blotches/marks are UNDER the protector, then you have to decide if you like them, or not!

    I don't think you really need a screen protector to begin with, since its not a touch screen. If you use a microfiber cloth to clean it once in a while it will be fine and you'll never get scratches. I don't think I ever scratched any of my laptop or desktop screens.

    With that said, it looks like residue from cleaning the screen prior to applying the protector or locked in moisture that has now condensed onto the screen. Just take the protector off, wipe it down with a microfiber cloth, and everything will be okay.
