I got a message saying I logged in to (or attempted to log in to) LINE on a PC or iPad toggle
When the email address and password registered to your LINE account were used to log in to LINE for PC (or LINE for iPad), you'll receive a message saying "xxxx logged in to (or attempted log in to) your account on the PC (or iPad) version of LINE.

If the message says you attempted to log in, it means that a login attempt failed because the password entered didn't match the one registered to your account.

If the message says you logged in, it means that the email address and password entered matched those registered to your account, and the login was completed.

If you received either of these messages but didn't try logging in to your account, it may be because:

• Another user with an email address similar to the one you have registered with LINE accidentally entered your address; or
• A third party tried logging in using your email address and password.

If you're having issues, please see this Help article and change your password.

Please note that if your Allow login setting is turned OFF, you won't be able to log in to LINE for PC even if your email address and password match.
Note: If the password entered doesn't match the one registered to your account, you'll still receive a message.

For more information about the Allow login setting, please see here.

If you've logged in to a site that uses LINE Login v2.1 and log in to another site using Single Sign On (SSO) authentication, the LINE official account will send you a notification as a security measure.

If you log in to a site that doesn't use LINE Login v2.1, you'll just receive a regular login notification.

LINE Beacon

About LINE Beacon toggle
From information about new products and services to coupons and sales, LINE Beacon lets you receive special messages on LINE via the official accounts of stores and train stations that have beacons (Bluetooth transmitters).

For information on how you can use LINE Beacon, see this Help article.

Note: This feature is not supported on iPads and Android tablets.

When you have the above settings configured and are near a store or station that uses LINE Beacon, you can get the following on LINE:

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.

About the URL access information collected via the LINE app toggle
URL access information is collected only from users who have agreed to provide LINE chat usage data

When collecting URL access information, we take the following measures to protect users' privacy:

• Only the domain name and the hashed variable part of the URL (path and parameters) is collected.
• Collected data is not linked to a user identifier.

It is very difficult to obtain an original URL from its hash, so we calculate our access ranking by hashing the URLs of widely used public sites and comparing the resulting hashes with the URL hashes we collected. We then calculate the number of site visits only for the sites with matching hashes.

We do not try to convert hashed URLs to the original URLs in any way.

The "External app access" setting toggle
When your friends on LINE use external apps (e.g. apps offered by companies other than LINE), those apps ask LINE whether it can access your profile information. The External app access setting lets you allow or deny such access.
Note: Your profile information includes your LINE display name, profile photo, status message, and uniquely assigned internal identifier (a unique number that LINE gives each user).

If you enable this setting, external apps will be able to access your LINE profile information, which is used in the friend requests and display of names in rankings for those apps.

For your reference, LINE Games and other LINE services can access your profile information regardless of your External app access setting.
