See this example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>First Bootstrap Example</title>
<meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1.0">
<!-- Bootstrap -->
<link href = "" rel = "stylesheet">
<h1>Hello, world!</h1>
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

Bootstrap is mobile friendly: Bootstrap 3 is designed to be responsive to mobile devices.

Mobile-first styles are part of the core framework of Bootstrap.You have to add the following <meta> tag inside the <head> element for proper rendering and touch zooming:

<meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1.0">

Note: The "width=device-width" part is used to set the width of the page to follow the screen-width of the device (vary according to the devices).

The initial-scale=1 part is used to set the initial zoom level when the page is first loaded by the browser.
