Hero+ LCD Touch Backdoor plastic film

My Hero+ LCD Touch Backdoor has a thin plastic film on top of the actual screen cover.  It looks like the kind of film I remove from other electronics when I first get them. It has started to get bubbles in it and I'm wondering if this film is supposed to be left in place or can it be removed without any damage to the lcd touchscreen functionality?  See attached photo

 

thanks

Great Question @mikelever.

You have nothing to worry about. That blue tab you can pull

that is just a screen protector from the manufacturer when shipping it. 

Hope that helps.

Wow, thanks!  it would be great if they told you that in the manual somewhere.

 

I've been using it for a year with that on there!

It's fine @mikelever.

Smart you kept it on, probably has less scratches than mine.
