The error message "Unable to use account" suddenly appeared toggle
The "Unable to use account" error message usually appears for one of the following reasons.

Your LINE account has become inaccessible because the registered phone number was removed Note: Once your account becomes inaccessible, the data related to it (including your friends and chat history) is deleted and cannot be restored.

If a new account was created with the phone number that was registered to the LINE account you were using: The same phone number being registered to more than one LINE account is causing the issue.
Note: 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 verify your LINE account with 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.

Please keep using the account you can currently use, or create a new one.
Note: You can use the same account on LINE for PC or LINE for iPad by logging in with the same email address.

Note: Rest assured that the person currently contracted with your old phone number cannot access your previous LINE account data, and your account has not been stolen.

In this case, you will need to sign up for a new account with a phone number you're currently contracted with.

If you want to use your LINE account on the previous device again, tap OK or Delete on the "Unable to use account" error message screen > Log in and transfer your account.
