Yes, to a point. It won't protect it from scratches, as the screen is open when you open the flap. It does protect it from falls and the case has an auto sleep mode for the Kindle when you close it. You can add a screen protector directly to the screen to protect it.

As far as I can tell they are under the settings menu in the drop down. But Honestly it must have came pre set to do it some how with my case it automatically comes on when I open the case. And goes to sleep when I shut it.
