There are some issues currently experienced by new users when they are trying to create a new profile. Existing users are not facing this issue. If you are a new user then a workaround is to use a different device on another platform for creating the new account, then sign-in on your Tizen device.
This app is now released for only Samsung Z4 and Samsung Z2 mobile, as in Indonesia these two Tizen phones are available. But, Z1 users and Z3 users should soon be receiving this app in the Tizen Store. Download size of this app is 12 MB.
