Today I will talk about the Samsung account for the Samsung mobiles. Many people in India and Pakistan are not aware of the benefits of the Samsung account so they don’t use it. Even some of them ask why do I need a Samsung account when I have my google drive and Gmail account?
So, let’s talk about what is the Samsung account, why do you need a Samsung account, and what are the benefits of having a Samsung account on your Samsung mobile.
What is Samsung Account?
This is not an email account like Gmail or Hotmail. A Samsung account is like a membership account that allows you to use various services and apps provided by Samsung.
A few people also asked me on the Facebook page that how they can find their Samsung email account? Well, I would like to mention again that this is no email service.
With the Samsung account, you get a membership of Samsung. You can use any email address to register for the Samsung account. After registration, you will be able to use different services and apps like Samsung Health, Samsung Pay and with that, you also get a lot more benefits of a Samsung account.
Is it necessary to have a Samsung account?
No, it is not necessary to have a Samsung account when you are using your mobile. But if you want to use your Samsung watch, then you must have a Samsung account on your mobile.
You will also need a Samsung account when you want to use the Samsung Health app. For simple mobile use, making calls, capturing photos, and recording videos, using google meet or for using social apps and messengers, it is not necessary to have a Samsung account.
You can register for your Samsung account while you are setting up your new mobile for the first time use. If you don’t register your Samsung account at that time, you can create one any time from settings > Accounts > Add Account > Samsung Account.

Why Do I Need a Samsung Account?
There are various benefits associated with the Samsung account, so to get those benefits, you need to have a Samsung account on your Samsung mobile.
Some of the benefits are:
Access to the Samsung Health app: If you want to keep a record of your daily physical activity then you must use the Samsung health app that is pre-installed on your device. When you launch this health app, it will ask you to register with your Samsung account. So if you have your Samsung account you can use this app to maintain your health.
Pay with your Samsung mobile: If you want to use the Samsung Pay service, then you need to have a Samsung account. With this service, you can keep a record of all your credit cards and other digital cards. Samsung Pay allows you to select your credit card from the wallet and then you need to bring your mobile closer to the payment terminal and Samsung Pay will transmit the payment information of your selected card.
Backup your data: With a Samsung account, you can use the Samsung cloud storage that offers 15GB of free storage space. You can use this to backup your important data so that in case you accidentally lost your mobile, you can access your data easily on any other Samsung mobile or on your computer by logging in to Samsung cloud storage.
Samsung Find My Phone: When you have enabled the locations on your mobile and sign in to your Samsung account, you can find your lost mobile’s location with the Samsung Find My Phone service.
Lock your stolen phone remotely: If your phone is lost and you are not able to reach it, or it is stolen, you can lock your phone from your Samsung account by logging in to the website. You can set any lock on your phone and can leave a message as well. When the user who finds your mobile or who has stolen your mobile tries to unlock it, he will see your message and he can call you back as well.
Erase all data from stolen mobile: If you are not able to get back your stolen mobile and you are in doubt that someone might get your important data by unlocking it with software that can unlock Samsung phone without losing data, you can erase all the data on your mobile remotely by using your Samsung account on your PC or MAC.
Remove the Samsung lock screen: If you forget your pattern lock or pin lock or any other type of screen lock, you might lose all your data if you don’t have a Samsung account on your mobile. When you have a Samsung account on your mobile you can remove any screen lock from Samsung mobile without losing any data. In the video below, you can learn how you can do that.
Protect your private photos: If you want to protect your photos on your phone then the Samsung account will help you. On old models, you will find an option of “Private mode” and on the new models you will see an option of “Secure Folder”. With the Samsung account, you can use any of these options to protect your private photos and videos. Watch this video to learn how to lock private photos and videos on Samsung mobile with the Secure folder option.
There are more benefits of a Samsung account that you can have on your Samsung mobile. I just mentioned a few of them. So, if you are using a Samsung mobile, register your Samsung account with any of your email addresses and get all the benefits of using a Samsung account.
