Samsung Health opened up on someone's phone

Even if you're interested in fitness, keeping track of how much you exercise can be difficult. That's why you should let your phone do it for you. If you have a Samsung account, you can store your exercise data in the Samsung Health app. Just sign into an existing account or create a new account through Samsung Health to begin.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, or phone model.

Sign in to your Samsung account

Note: Samsung health requires all users to set up 2-step verification using a password and phone number to protect your personal health information.

From everyday routines to intense workouts, Samsung Health can keep track of everything. But first, you will need to sign in to the app with a Samsung account and do the initial setup.

  1. Navigate to and open the Samsung Health app on your Galaxy device.

  2. If you aren't already logged in to your Samsung account, tap Sign in, and then follow any on-screen instructions.
    Note: For more details about your Samsung account, please see our guide to managing your account.

  5. If prompted, select your desired phone number to be linked to your Samsung Health account, and then tap Next. Your phone number will be used to help friends find you and invite you to participate in challenges.


    Note: The Phone permission will be used to get your device's unique identifier for the 2-step verification process that keeps your health data secure.

  7. If prompted, you can choose to link your Samsung account or create a new account. Pick your desired option, and then follow any on-screen instructions.

Manage your personal information

If your weight has changed from all that working out, you can adjust it and other personal information in Samsung Health.

Note: Your health information can only be accessed and changed from within the Samsung Health app. Your health data cannot be viewed or changed through a web browser or any other app.

  1. Navigate to and open the Samsung Health app. Tap the My Page tab, and then tap Edit next to your name.

  2. From this page, you can adjust your personal information such as your profile, picture, name, height, and more. Tap Save when you are finished.

  3. If you'd like to change the associated email address, you will need to switch your Samsung account. This is because Samsung Health automatically uses the email address registered to your Samsung account.

  4. To sign out of your account, tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap Settings. Tap Samsung account, tap Sign out, and then follow any on-screen instructions to log out.
