The Google Pixel 6 Pro has quickly proven to be one of the best Android phones on the market, but its screen has presented challenges for accessory makers. For example, the in-screen fingerprint sensor hasn't played 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.

After two months of tempered glass screen protectors that didn't work properly, Whitestone Dome Glass has rolled up to the party to show us how it's done. This two-pack of tempered glass screen protectors is perfectly sculpted to the edges of the 6 Pro and the UV curing ensures no gaps or interference with the fingerprint sensor.
Spigen has always been a go-to brand for protective accessories, and this screen protector for your Google Pixel 6 Pro is no exception. If you apply it wrong, you can reapply it without worrying about bubbles since the protector comes with a special binding liquid. Additionally, it offers edge-to-edge coverage and can easily cover the screen regardless of cases.
Thin but durable
Another self-healing film, Skinomi's variety, is case-friendly and comes with an installation solution to help you achieve the perfect placement the first time. It comes with a spare, but these TPU films are durable enough that you shouldn't need to use them for a long time.
Never get locked out
The Pixel 6 Pro's fingerprint scanner can be a bit iffy. While Google endorses a few tempered glass solutions, almost all of those are out of stock. If you can't deal with a film screen protector and want tempered glass, AACL's solution has you covered. It features a groove around the fingerprint scanner where the material is thinner than the rest of the glass, allowing the fingerprint scanner to identify your finger more accurately. In addition to the screen protector, you also get two lens protectors in the bundle.
While tempered glass screen protectors for the front of your Pixel 6 Pro can give you trouble, it has no such issues covering your cameras. Instead, UniqueMe's four-pack gives you the best protection for each side of your phone at an excellent price.
Supershieldz is excellent at providing a wide range of ways to protect your screen, including this basic two-pack of TPU screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 Pro. Please, please read the instructions: there are bubbles after the initial install that are designed to go away after 2-3 days.
The Fortress tempered glass is designed at the microscopic level to absorb impact shocks, while its anti-fingerprint coating prevents sweat or oil residue from sticking to it. It also comes with an installation kit, so it might not be an issue even if you are going for your first try. Besides, Fortress also offers a $200 screen repair coverage and a lifetime replacement warranty if the glass protector breaks.
This IMBZBK TPU Film 3-pack comes with two pieces of glass to cover your Pixel 6 Pro's camera bar as well. It fits the 6 Pro's curved edges nicely and has darkened corners. You get a good deal for the price you pay.
Front and back protection
The EGV TPU Screen Protector for the Google Pixel 6 Pro doesn't have black edges, which may be something you prefer. This set comes with two TPU protectors for your phone and also two darkened glass protectors for the camera unit on the back.
Navigating the complications with the best Pixel 6 Pro screen protectors
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.
