Friend's names and profile photos toggle
Display names
How your friend's name will appear on your LINE account will depend on your or your friend's settings. 

There are three possibilities:
• If you added the friend by syncing your contacts list, the name registered in your device's contacts list will be displayed.

• If you added the friend by LINE ID search, Shake it!, or QR code (methods other than syncing your contacts list), the name your friend set on their LINE account will be displayed.

• If you manually changed the friend's name on your friends list, the name you edited will appear. This will only change the friend's name on your friends list.

Profile photos
Your friend's profile photo will be the one that they set from their profile screen. You can change your own profile photo, but you cannot change your friend's profile photo.

My contact's name is displayed differently toggle
If a LINE friend is registered using their phone number, the name that they are saved with in your device’s contacts will be displayed. If they are not registered using their phone number, the display name they set in LINE will be displayed.

If you add a friend who is saved in your contacts using their LINE ID, the display name they set in LINE will be displayed.

Display names do not appear properly toggle

If the friend whose name does not appear properly is saved in your device's contacts list, it is possible their name contained an emoji when it was saved.


Check your contacts list. If your friend's name was saved with an emoji, please try deleting it.


If the issue persists after trying the above, please refer to the following steps:

1. Go to More > Settings.
2. Tap Friends.
3. Turn ON Auto-add friends

Note: If the option is already turned ON, tap the refresh icon next to the last synced date to manually sync your contacts.


Tap here to open the Settings menu from your smartphone.
