How do I back up data using my Samsung account?

With your Samsung account, you can back up and restore your data in the same device.

 

You can also synchronise several Samsung devices if you're using the same Samsung account. This feature is very useful when you want to keep the same data for all Samsung devices.

 

Type of data backed up: Phone logs, Messages, Wallpaper, Priority Senders, Spam addresses and filter, Call rejection list.

 

PLEASE NOTE: the types of data you can back up will depend on your device.
