Usage Environment

Is LINE completely free? toggle
All of LINE's basic features can be used for free.
Note: Some items, such as Coins and Stickers, must be purchased to use in LINE.

Please understand that you will need to pay for any data usage fees that you may be charged depending on the data plan you have with your mobile phone carrier. You may be charged every time you connect to the service if you are paying for only the amount of data you use. For this reason, we recommend signing up for a flat-rate data plan if you don't already have one.

Can I use the same account on more than one device? toggle
With the smartphone version of LINE, the same account cannot be used on multiple devices. Only one phone number or email address can be used to verify one account per device. If you register the same phone number on a different device, the account on your previous device will automatically be deleted and you will no longer be able to use it.

You can use the same account on the PC and iPad versions of LINE by logging in with the same email address.
