Default Are privacy filters hard to install?

Hello everyone. I was thinking about buying a privacy filter for my 23 inch monitor. Are these as hard to install as those anti glare screen protectors are? Can they easily slide on and off or do you have to go through extreme care and effort so that you don't get any dust particles under it?

They're usually just a plastic sheet that slide on top of the screen. Yes, they're extremely easy to install / remove (usually they have a notch at one end where you can pull to take it off).

You don't really have to be that careful, as it's just a semi-thick piece of plastic basically.

It's like any screen protecter, as far as I know. Follow the directions.
