If you have a Samsung account on a Samsung smartphone, you cannot delete your account directly from the phone. I’ll explain how to do that in this very quick tutorial.
Samsung is the only Android maker that can even remotely compete with Apple in terms of product ecosystem. At the center of this ecosystem is the Galaxy smartphone, but most importantly, your Samsung account. It connects all connected objects in your smart home, lets you find your Samsung smartphone if you lose it, and gives you access to Samsung-exclusive features and apps.
But if you want to get out of the Samsung bubble, you can’t do it directly from your smartphone. You must first disconnect your Samsung account from the smartphone and delete it from the browser.
Disconnect your Samsung account from your Galaxy smartphone
- go to set up Access your Samsung account Via the tile at the top of the screen
- scroll down and click Sign out
- confirm your choice

Again, you’ll have to confirm your choice at least twice, and Samsung will show you all the great features, apps, and perks you’ll lose. You can always recreate one anyway. But you must use a different email address than the one associated with your previous account.
