How to fix Samsung Account login issue on One UI 6.1 devices
Some Galaxy S24 users have reported that they are unable to log in to their Samsung account on their devices. The Samsung Account issue is caused by the Adguard app on One UI 6.1 devices, which blocks the Samsung account server as an ad-related site.
