Nexus Protect is a service from Google that adds additional insurance coverage for Nexus devices. First announced at Google's event on September 29, 2015, Nexus Protect was initially made available for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P for $69 and $89 respectively. Nexus Protect goes beyond the 1-year manufacturer's warranty, covering accidental damage and mechanical breakdown of devices. The coverage stays with the phone, so even if it changes owners it remains covered under Nexus Protect.

The ability to file a claim is available 24/7, and claims are subject to a $79 deductible and up to 2 incidents of accidental damage coverage over 2 years.
