Add Accounts to Your Phone

Person adding email account to Note9

To use certain features or apps on your phone, you need to sign into an account. For example, to sync data to Samsung Cloud, you need a Samsung account. Or if you want to download that brand new app from Play Store, you need a Google account. Luckily, you can add these accounts and more to your phone.

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

Samsung Account

The best way to get the most from your Galaxy phone is to add a Samsung account, so you can experience all of the exclusive features.

To add a Samsung account, navigate to Settings, and then swipe to and select Accounts and backup. Touch Accounts, and then touch Add account. Touch Samsung account, and then enter your Samsung account info to sign in. If you don't already have an account, don't worry. Just touch Create account to make one.
