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

Log out of your account

You can log out of your Samsung account on a computer on the website easily, but logging out on a phone or tablet is a little different. To "log out" on a phone or tablet, you actually have to remove the account. Doing so may disable some features, but you can always add the account back later if you would like. 

Log out on a phone or tablet

From Settings, swipe to and tap Accounts and backup, and then tap Accounts. Select your Samsung account from the list, and then tap More Options. Tap Remove account, and then follow on-screen prompts to log out of your account.

Log out on a PC or Mac

Navigate to the Samsung website. From here, click your name in the upper right corner, and then click Log Out.

Delete 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. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and then select Close Account. Review the precautions, and then follow the on-screen prompts to finish deleting your account.

If you are unable to delete your account, you may have unresolved payment issues. Contact Samsung support for further assistance.
