Is LINE 100% free of charge? toggle
LINE provides free messenger and VoIP services on 3G and Wi-Fi networks. Users do not have to pay for these services. We also offer optional paid services such as Coins and some of the stickers.

As with any other apps, you may be charged a 3G usage fee by your mobile phone company if you do not subscribe to an unlimited data plan, or if you exceed the data usage limit of your plan.

- Depending on your current plan, you may not be able to use the VoIP service for free. Please contact your network carrier for more information.

We hope you enjoy using LINE!

Can I use the same account on multiple devices? toggle

The same LINE account cannot be used on multiple smartphones. Each phone number and email address can only be used on one device. If you verify LINE on another device using the same phone number, the account on your previous device will be deleted automatically and you will no longer be able to access it.


You can use the same account you use on your smartphone on your PC or iPad by logging in with your email address on the respective versions for PC and iPad.
