Sync data across all of your devices using Samsung Cloud

Syncing data through Samsung Cloud

Make sure your phone's data is up to date. With Samsung Cloud, you can sync data on multiple devices, so they'll have the latest information. For example, if you added a new Calendar event or take a picture on your phone, they will appear on other devices that are signed into the same Samsung account.

Note: Available settings may vary by carrier and software version. Not all countries or carriers support this service. Samsung Cloud is not available on Verizon phones or tablets.

Sync your data

You use some files types and apps more than others - no worries, you can customize which apps automatically sync.

From Settings, tap Accounts and backup, and then tap Samsung Cloud. Tap More Options, and then tap Settings. Tap Sync and auto backup settings, and then tap the Sync tab.

Next, tap the switch next to your desired apps to turn auto sync on or off for them. Some apps you can sync include Contacts, Calendar, and Gallery.

If you want to manually sync everything right now, simply tap Sync now.

Enabling Auto back up or Syncing your data manually also ensures that your Cloud storage account is safe from deletion. Any accounts or categories such as contacts, calendars, photos, videos, keyboard data, etc. that are not used within a 12 month period could be subject to deletion. 

Note: Content will not automatically sync if your Cloud storage is full.

Sync using Wi-Fi or Mobile data

By default, your apps will only sync to Samsung Cloud when your phone has a Wi-Fi connection. But you can make them automatically sync using mobile data, so you won't miss anything.

From Settings, tap Accounts and backup, and then tap Samsung Cloud. Navigate to your desired app by either selecting Gallery or Other synced data where you will find apps like Calendar, Contacts, and Notes. Here you can turn on or off the apps that you would like to sync by using the toggle next to each app. To change the sync settings, tap Sync using, and then choose Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi and mobile data.

Wi-Fi only chosen on settings page

Note: Data charges may apply if Wi-Fi and mobile data is selected.
