How to Access Photos in Samsung Cloud from PC

The Samsung Cloud provides a seamless backup, restore and sync experience for all the Galaxy Device users and it protects the user’s data from being lost if the mobile phone is stolen, lost or broken. This data stays safe and can be accessed from the mobile anytime using the internet. Most commonly users backup their Photos and videos to be stored on the cloud. However, this cloud cannot be accessed by PC using conventional methods.
