Account transfer verification

My account was restricted when I tried requesting an account transfer code toggle
An error message will appear if you repeatedly request an account transfer code in a short amount of time.

If the message "You have been temporarily restricted from requesting account transfer codes because you repeatedly requested them. Please try again later." appears when requesting a code, try again after 24 hours has passed.

I’m not receiving the account transfer code toggle
The account transfer code that you are asked to enter when you change phone numbers or choose to log in with Facebook, will be sent by text message to the phone number you registered on the account you want to transfer.
Note: A text message and a LINE chat message will be sent to you at the same time. You can see the account transfer code on platforms such as the PC version of LINE.

If you are not receiving the account transfer code by text message, it may be because:
• You have not registered a phone number to your LINE account.
• You canceled or changed your phone number and are not receiving text messages.
