While the strict use of a Google account is often preferred by Samsung mobile device users, many manufacturers also suggest creating a separate Samsung account in order to benefit from the full array of Samsung services, including certain apps, Samsung Drive, as well as some other mobile, television, and web services. This article will walk you through the steps of creating your own Samsung account. All you need to do this is a valid email address.
How to sign up for a Samsung Account?
As mentioned above, Samsung accounts give you access to a variety of Samsung-specific services. These include (but are not limited to) Samsung Galaxy apps, AllShare Play (a multimedia management service), Find My Mobile (a service that allows you to locate, manage, and lock lost or stolen devices), Learning Hub (a download service for interactive educational content), Family Story (which allows you to share photos, events, and messages with family and friends), and ChatON (Samsung's instant messaging service).
Account holders also have access to the Music Hub, Samsung's online streaming service.

Creating a Samsung account can be done via a desktop browser, Samsung Kies, or smartphone.

Tap Create new account, and accept the Terms and Conditions. Note that if you decline anything, you will not be able to continue.

How to download Samsung apps?
Now that your account is activated, you have the ability to download any application from Samsung Apps.
To do this, you can proceed in one of two ways. The first method is to head to the Samsung Apps website and find your desired download. Select the type of device on which you'd like to install the application, and confirm. The app will download to your selected device.
You can also choose to download directly from your mobile phone by launching the Samsung Apps application and selecting your download.
Download Samsung Kies
Samsung Kies is Samsung's default software suite, and it allows you to sync your Samsung phone with your PC. It also provides direct access to the Samsung App Store.
