What can I do if I’m not receiving the verification email when registering for a Samsung Account?
Last updated July 26th, 2023
Here are some possible scenarios for not getting the verification email, and actions you can try:
|You can't access the device used for 2-step verification.||Contact Samsung Support in your region. After we verify your identity (full name, date of birth, device IMEI or serial number), we temporarily deactivate two-step verification. You can then sign in to your account and register a new device or change the phone number used for two-step verification.|
|You lost your backup code.||Contact Samsung Support in your region. After we verify your identity (full name, date of birth, device IMEI or serial number), we send you a new backup code.|
|You can't access the email account used to register the Samsung Account.||
As per our Samsung Account policy, if you lose access to your email account, you should create a new Samsung account and associate it with a new email address.
You then need to update all the Samsung services you registered with the old address to use the new email address. If you used the old email address to access Samsung Knox services, contact Samsung Knox Support to notify us of your old and new email address.
