Samsung account has a serious security flaw. Once you manage to enter the cell phone screen all the information of the samsung account will be visible (User Profile) in this way with possession of the information a malicious person can request recovery very easily since the number and the telephone in question will be the way to recover the password. A simple way to ensure the security and integrity of the samsung account would be to protect the profile and account settings by password, which is not possible on the samsung A53 among other more current cell phones.

Yea, the key phrase is

"Once you manage to enter the cell phone screen"


If you've properly secured your smartphone , it's gonna be difficult to even access the phone's features.


Ours require a password to unlock, and you're NEVER gonna guess passwords we use, and which we change once a month

Everyone's Samsung account should be protected with a username and password by default. 2FA should also now be enabled by default as well.

Not sure where you're getting at?

Yes agreed and through your Google account now you could actually turn your phone into an actual security key. It is kind of a pain in the **bleep** when you do reset your phone you can't immediately sign in you have to wait for all the system apps and basically your phone app and your messaging app lol because Google can't send you your security code unless your phone app in your messaging app is installed

If you registered your phone number to recover your email password. The malicious person only has one security barrier to break through unlocking your cell phone. Once inside the cell phone, it can ask to reset the password of any known e-mail and enter bank accounts, websites, etc... It can add a digital and easily access any app that uses a registered digital. The two-layer factor won't help at this point. The individual will already have your phone and e-mails.
