Set up and manage your Samsung account on your Galaxy phone
Not only does your Samsung account give you access to exclusive apps, it lets you back up, restore, and sync your data between multiple devices, and more. Some features may vary by device and country so remember to keep your information up to date. This will also help if you forget your ID or Password.
Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.
Galaxy phones have a Samsung account software built right into their settings. Navigate to Settings, and then tap Accounts and backup. Tap Accounts, tap Add account, and then tap Samsung account. You can Sign in if you already have an account, or tap Create account to make one.
If you choose to create a new account, simply review the legal information, and then tap Agree. Enter your information, and then tap Create account. Your Samsung account setup is now complete.
If it's been awhile since you set up your Samsung account, some of your info might be out of date. You can update your information any time. From Settings, tap Accounts and backup, and then tap Accounts. Select your Samsung account from the list, and then tap Personal info. Tap the information you want to update, and then enter the correct details. When you're done, tap Save.
If you want to change your password, tap Password and security on the Samsung Account Home page. Then, tap Change password and follow the on-screen prompts to finish.
Did you forget the password to your Samsung account? Find it from your phone or a computer using the account retrieval page. Select the Reset password tab, and enter your email or phone number associated with your Samsung account. Then, select NEXT.
An email will be sent to your inbox; follow the instructions in the email to reset your password.
To "log out" on a phone, you actually have to remove the account. Doing so may disable some features, but you can always add the account back later if you like.
From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup, and then tap Accounts. Select your Samsung account from the list, tap Personal info, and then tap the More options icon (the three vertical dots). Tap Remove account, and then follow the on-screen prompts to log out of your account.
Deleting your Samsung account will also delete your Samsung purchase history, content subscriptions, content uploads, and personal profile information. This information cannot be recovered, so be certain you want to delete your account before you continue.
To permanently delete your Samsung account, navigate to the Samsung account web page. Log in using your ID and password, and then select My Account info. Click the Profile card, and then click Samsung Account settings.
Click Delete account, review the precautions, and then follow the on-screen prompts to finish deleting it.
