Set up and manage your Samsung account

Not only does your Samsung account give you access to exclusive apps, like SmartThings and Samsung Pay, it lets you back up, restore, and sync your data between multiple devices, and more. This will also help if you forget your ID or password. Some features may vary by device and country so remember to keep your information up to date.

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