As a Samsung customer, your phone gets free storage in Samsung Cloud! That means you can sync and back up photos, apps, contacts, data, and so on using Samsung Cloud on your phone. But if you need more, you can purchase additional space at any time. You can also access Samsung Cloud via our web portal.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version. Samsung Cloud may not be available depending on your country or carrier.

From Settings, tap Accounts and backup, and then tap Samsung Cloud. Tap the More Options button in the top right corner then tap Settings. Next tap the slider next to Show Samsung Cloud icon to add the icon to your Apps screen.
