While most eyes are drawn to that distinctive back and camera bump on the Google Pixel 6, the screen upfront is nothing to sneeze at either. This 6.4-inch 90Hz screen already has the protection of Gorilla Glass Victus, but to be perfectly honest, that’s not enough. After all, glass can still scratch, and if your phone falls face first, the only real way to avoid a shattered green is a high-quality tempered glass screen protector. While tempered glass screen protectors still have some caveats right now, these are the very best Pixel 6 screen protectors you can buy right now.

Zagg’s tempered glass screen protector is a slim handful that is certified Made for Google for the Pixel 6. This means you won’t have to worry about any wonk with the fingerprint sensor, and you get a top-quality tempered glass protector to help your screen avoid shatters.

Best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors: Time to choose
Before we review the best Google Pixel 6 screen protectors, let’s talk about the fingerprint sensor. The Pixel 6 may still be new to the market, and we’ve had issues with the fingerprint sensor not working with a great number of tempered glass screen protectors. While optical in-screen fingerprint scanners theoretically shouldn’t have any issues with any screen protectors, thicker tempered glass screen protectors have run into some issues. Thinner glass screen protectors and all film protectors have been working well, but Google directs users to buy a screen protector from a “Made for Google” certified company, which at this point would be Zagg, OtterBox, PanzerGlass, and ImpactShield (RhinoShield).
The Zagg InvisibleShield is a name-brand, high-quality tempered glass screen protector that Google says works with the Pixel 6, which means it’s the best option you can buy right now that’s not a film protector. If you can’t quite justify its higher price to protect some of the best Android phones, the TOCOL has worked perfectly for many early users — and it comes with spares and covers for the camera bar, too. OtterBox’s Clearly Protected Film is a nice in-between option if you don’t want to deal with the possibility of fingerprint wonk but want something stronger than a super-thin film protector.
