Samsung Health will need you to have a Samsung account for access

Samsung is implementing a major user policy change after four years of Samsung Health (which used to be S Health back in the day. What’s changing? Great question. The service is about to make Samsung Accounts mandatory for all users of the service. This is due to the fact that before, you didn’t need an account to access the mobile and wearable app.
