A screen protector is a thin layer of material that is applied to the screen of an electronic gadget to preserve the latter's display from physical damage, most particularly scratches. A screen protector, also known as a screen guard, is typically composed of laminated tempered glass (which looks very similar to the screen of the host device) or plastics including polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). A plastic screen protector is less expensive, thinner, and more flexible than glass. A glass protector, on the other hand, feels more like the host device's original screen and resists scratches better.

The sight of a broken phone's screen is always unpleasant. Screen protectors, which are thin plastic or glass coverings that may be applied to a smartphone display, claim that their goods will protect the screen against scratches and cracks if it is dropped facing down. Additionally, the majority of cracked smartphone screens are caused by impact on the sides and edges. When a smartphone's corners or edges clash with the ground, the impact is concentrated in a small area and is more likely to shatter, whereas if it fell facing down on the floor, the impact would be spread out over the entire screen.

Screen protectors, help to protect displays from scratches, which can compromise the internal structure of a display and lead to major cracks. Many smartphone manufacturers and sellers provide an extended warranty that allows to exchange or fix the phone if it becomes damaged. The disadvantage is that the price of warranty programs frequently exceeds the cost of individual gadget repairs.

As a result, the high cost of luxury smartphones, integrated with the danger of screen breakage, has boosted smartphone screen protector sales in recent years.
