Written By Axel Nash |

If you have been using Line Chat for quite a while, but you now want to change your location or country within the app, you have come to the right place. This article will show you all the steps you need to take to make that possible. But before we begin, it is important to point out that your Line account is often tied to your email, Facebook profile or phone number. Therefore, the only way to change your location or country is to change the phone number associated with your account.

Full Guide to Change Location or Country on Line

To successfully change the location or country in your Line Chat account, you will need to do the following;

Step 1: Backup Chats and Reinstall the App

The first thing you need to do is create a backup of your Line Chat history. This will keep you from having to start over again when you successfully change the location. Depending on your device, you can back up your chat history on iCloud or Google Drive. Once you have successfully changed your phone number, you can restore the chat history and pick up where you left off.

If you want to save some specific chats, here’s how you can export them;

Step 1: Open the Line Chat app and then click on the “Chats” icon at the bottom of the screen. Choose the Chats that you want to save.

Step 2: Tap on the chat and then tap on the three horizontal lines in the top right-hand corner. Select “Other Settings.

Alt: line settings

Step 3: Tap on “Export Chat History” and then follow the on-screen prompts to save the chat history to your device.

Alt: line chat history

With all your most important chats saved, we can now move on to transferring your account. Doing this will give you the option to change your country or region. Start by uninstalling and then reinstalling the Line app.

Step 2: Signing Back In

Once the app is reinstalled on your device, follow these simple steps to sign back in and transfer your account;

Step 1: Open the app and tap “Login.”

Alt:log in line

Step 2: Select the country you are in and enter the new phone number you are using. Tap on the arrow to continue.

Alt: line account

Step 3: Go through the verification process, enter the code you received on the new number, and tap “Yes, Transfer my Account.

Alt: transfer line

Step 3: Restoring Chat Backups

Continue with the setup process to restore chats onto your device;

Step 1: Choose if you want to transfer with your previous phone number or email address.

Alt: log into line

Step 2: Enter the previous email address or phone number and complete the setup process as you normally would.

Alt: comfirm email

Step 3: Enter your password, tap on the arrow and select “OK.

In the next steps, you can choose if you want to add friends from your contact lists and then choose if you want to restore your chat history.

Confirm the “Regarding Usage of Your Information” popup when it appears, and you’re done. Your account will now be associated with the new phone number and the new location you selected.
