How to add additional user accounts to my Galaxy tablet?

Last Update date : Jul 29. 2022

Please note: the first account that is added to the tablet is the administrator account. Only this account has full control of the device and the account management. Please swap to this account before trying to create or edit user accounts.

With multiple user accounts you can share your Galaxy tablet with the whole family, while still having your own seperate apps, wallpaper and settings. Just like a desktop PC, every user can customise the tablet to their own preferences without impacting other users. You can even set up restricted profiles, giving you complete control over the apps the user can access, creating a safe space for children or a workspace free from distractions.
