I'm still seeing banners even though LINE Beacon is turned off toggle
If Bluetooth is enabled on your device, it will detect Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals from nearby beacons, regardless of whether the LINE Beacon setting in the app is turned on or not. If a nearby beacon transmits a signal compatible with LINE Beacon, a banner will show up in the app.

In these cases, LINE will receive information including the detected device and contact date, but will not obtain internal identifiers or any information that can identify you.

LINE and the official account of the beacon operator will obtain your beacon contact information and internal identifiers only when both LINE Beacon and your device's Bluetooth are turned on. This allows us to share useful information and services related to the beacon you came into contact with.

I'm having issues with LINE Beacon toggle
If you encounter any issues when using LINE Beacon, please try updating the LINE app to the latest version and restarting your device.

The only data you can receive on LINE is LINE supported beacon data.

If you have Bluetooth turned OFF, banners will not appear, even if you approach a beacon. Please be sure to check your settings.
