The Protection enchantment is a Minecraft enchantment that is applied to armor and increases the damage reduction of the armor you are wearing. Protection grants you full protection against all types of damage such as attack damage, fire damage, lava damage and fall damage.
Protection Enchantment Details
You can add the Protection enchantment to any piece of armor, such as a helmet, breastplate, leggings, or boots, using an enchantment table, anvil, or game command. You must then wear the enchanted armor to gain the protection of the enchantment.
The maximum level for the protection enchantment is level 4. This means that you can enchant an item with protection level IV. The higher the level, the more powerful the enchantment.

In Minecraft, the enchantment Protection cannot be combined with the following enchantments:

Important: Although the Protection enchantment is less effective than the ones listed above, it allows you to protect against everything at once.
