Best Google Pixel 6 Pro screen protectors 2023

The Google Pixel 6 Pro might be an older model, but it's still a solid device to use. If you're upgrading to a new phone, you might also want to hand this one down to a friend or family member, or even resell it. It's important to keep it in pristine condition so it holds its value.

The screen, however, has presented challenges for accessory makers. For example, the in-screen fingerprint sensor doesn't play nice with tempered glass screen protectors, and the curved edges of the screen make it easier for protectors to peel up or not sit correctly. This means you need to pay extra special attention to the screen protector you buy, and these are the best Pixel 6 Pro screen protectors you can purchase right now.

As mentioned above, the Pixel 6 Pro's fingerprint sensor is more sensitive, which leads to more bad reads and frustration. While the optical sensor under the 6 Pro's screen shouldn't have issues with any screen protectors — after all, OnePlus has used them for years — there have been widespread reports of the 6 Pro's fingerprint sensor not working properly with most tempered glass screen protectors. This led to review-bombing on most early-tempered glass protectors before accessory makers stopped selling them and figured out what changes needed to be made before offering them again.

Whitestone Dome Glass was the brand we turned to with the Galaxy S10 when it first launched with its somewhat finicky in-screen fingerprint sensor, and we are turning to this brand again. It took its time to release a screen protector kit for the Pixel 6 Pro, but with the UV curing system and its experience with protecting curved screens, it is now the one and only tempered glass screen protector we trust for the Pixel 6 Pro.

If that's too expensive for you after buying a flagship phone, you'll need to go with a flexible TPU screen protector like the one from Spigen for protection against scratches. Film screen protectors will not protect against shatters the way tempered glass does, but they will still work with the fingerprint sensor, and unlike glass, film protectors are self-healing so that they can work out little divots and dents. However, if you want the assurance of glass without compromising on the fingerprint sensor's functionality, AACL's unique solution with a fingerprint cutout is the one to check out.

If you want another screen protection option for the Pixel 6 Pro, you'll want to look at a specific subset of Google Pixel 6 Pro cases: multilayer cases with built-in screen protectors. Cases like the Poetic Revolution, Supcase UB Pro, and i-Blason Cosmo series have a circle of adhesive and exact instructions to adhere the screen protector to the screen over the fingerprint sensor. I have used the i-Blason Cosmo Series, and when installed correctly, you get full-screen protection without any problems with the fingerprint sensor.
