How to change location or country in Line Chat

– 👌

If you use the Line chat app, you know that it is usually associated with your email, Facebook profile, or phone number. If you want to change your location or country, you will also have to change your entire phone number.

You can only do this by replacing the SIM card in your phone. You will also have to change the phone number associated with your Line app, but not before creating a backup of your chat history. You will learn how to do all of that in this article.

Transfer your Line account to another phone number

There is a way that you can transfer an existing account to another phone number regardless of the country of origin, but you will have to set up your Line account for the transfer first. Make sure to complete all of the following steps in the given order, or else you may lose your chat history and account preferences.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Change the registered phone number.
  2. Confirm your email address.
  3. Confirm your password.
  4. Create a backup of your chat history.

We will now explain each step in detail and tell you how to complete the conversion next.

Change the registered phone number

Start by replacing your old phone number with the number you will use from now on. Here’s how you can do that:

  1. Open the app.
  2. Go to the “Friends” tab and select “Settings”, then “Account”.
  3. Click on “Phone Number”.
  4. Click “Next”.
  5. Enter your new phone number and select Verify Phone Number. Click OK.
  6. Enter the code you received on your phone and click Next.

Keep in mind that you cannot use the same phone number to create multiple Line accounts. If you are using a phone number that is already registered to another account, you will lose access to the previous account.

Confirm your email address

Make sure the email address remains unchanged so you can keep your chat history after switching to another phone number. Here is what you should do:

Open the app. Click on “More”, then on “Settings” and select “Account”.

Select “Email address,” then click “Change your email.”

Do not make changes if you want to keep the same address and therefore your chat history. However, if you want to change it, enter the new address, and you will receive a verification code to your new email. Enter the code to check for changes.

Confirm your password

You must also confirm your current password, or you can change it to something else.

Do it like this:

  1. Go to the Friends tab and tap Settings, then tap Account.
  2. Specify the password.”
  3. Enter your current password to confirm, or you can enter a new password and confirm it.

Create a backup of your chat history

The final step of the setup process requires you to back up your chat history to iCloud or Google Drive depending on the device you’re using. You can then restore the history after entering the new phone number. It is important to note that you can only transfer history to devices running the same operating system.

Save chats

If there are specific conversations you’d like to save, do this:

Step 1

Open the app and tap on the Chats icon at the bottom of the screen. Then choose the chat you want to save.

Step 2

Tap on the chat you want to save and tap the three horizontal lines in the top right corner.

Step 3

Select “Other Settings” in the new window that appears.

Step 4

Select the “Export chat history” option and follow the instructions to save the chat history on your device.

Now that we’ve saved all of our most important conversations, we can proceed to move the account. Doing this procedure should give you the option to change your country or region.

change your location

Once the preparations are done, you are ready to transfer your Line account to another phone number. Complete the following steps:

Step 1

Click on “Login”.

Select the country you are in and enter your new phone number. Click the arrow when done. In the screenshot below, click on “United States” and select the country you wish to register.

Step 3

Follow the verification steps and enter the code when sending a text message to your new phone number. Then press “Yes, transfer my account”.

Step 4

You can choose to transfer using your previous phone number or email address.

Fifth step

Enter your previous email address or phone number and proceed with the setup process as you normally would.

Enter the same password you used during the setup process. Click on the arrow and select OK.

You can now choose to add friends from your phone’s contact list. Click on the arrow to continue. Choose if you want to restore your chat history. Confirm “About the use of your information” when it pops up. (Some users do not show this screen.)

Your existing account will now be linked to the new phone number you entered and your new location will be the location you selected in step 2 of the transfer process.

Stay connected with your friends online no matter where you are

Now that you know how to change the phone number associated with your Line account, you can travel all over the world and keep in touch with all your friends. You can use the same method to change countries and phone numbers no matter where you go. This will also give you access to content specific to your current location such as region-locked stickers and official accounts.

To keep your chat history, make sure to create a backup every time before changing your number.
