What if I just want to remove the account from my phone?

You don’t need to delete your Samsung account to remove it from your Galaxy phone or tablet, and if you do remove it, you can always add it back later.

To remove your account, head over to your device’s settings, tap ‘Accounts And Backup’, tap ‘Accounts’, choose your Samsung account, tap ‘Personal Info’ and then hit ‘Sign Out’.

Yes, you can. Follow the same steps used to remove a Samsung account, but select your Google account instead. Then tap ‘Remove Account’ and ‘Remove Account’ a second time to confirm.
