Written By Axel Nash | Mar 19,2020
If you are also a frequent LINE user and have got a new phone, then you might be having a similar thought. The good thing is that LINE has made it pretty easy for us to transfer our account. While doing so, some users still end up losing their chats and important attachments. Don’t worry – I’m here to help you move your LINE account without any trouble. In this post, I will teach you how to do LINE account transfer in four different ways.
Part 1: Using MobileTrans for LINE Account Transfer without Losing Chat Histories
If you don’t want to lose your LINE chats and contacts while switching phones, then take the assistance of MobileTrans - WhatsApp Transfer. Developed by Wondershare, the application lets us transfer all kinds of data from one device to another. It also has dedicated data transfer, backup, and restore features for social apps like LINE, WhatsApp, Viber, WeChat, and Kik. With it, you can first backup your LINE data from your iPhone to the computer and later restore it to the same or any other iOS device. This will include your LINE chats, contacts, documents, photos/videos, and so on.
Step 1. To start the LINE account transfer, just connect your iPhone to the computer and launch Wondershare MobileTrans on your system. Go to the WhatsApp Transfer module and select the LINE feature from the sidebar.
Step 2. Firstly, click on the “Backup” button to save your WhatsApp chats to the local computer. As you would get a snapshot of your phone, view the data that would be transferred and click on the “Start” button.
Step 3. Simply wait for a while and make sure your device stays connected to the system till the backup process is completed. You will be notified once your LINE chats are saved.
Step 4. Now, to move your LINE data to any other device, just connect the target iPhone and choose the “Restore” option instead.
Step 5. Select the previously taken backup and wait for a while as it would be moved to your iOS device. You will be notified once it is complete so that you can disconnect your device and launch LINE to access the newly transferred data.
Part 2: LINE Account Transfer with a Phone Number
To transfer our LINE account, the application provides a handful of options. For instance, you can do LINE account transfer with your phone number, registered email, or the connected Facebook account. Please note that this will only transfer your account and the chats would be moved if you have taken a backup beforehand. In this option, we will see how we can use the same number while using LINE on another phone. That is, this will let you do LINE account transfer with nothing but your registered phone number.
Step 1. To start with, just launch LINE and go to its settings by tapping on the gear icon at the top.
Step 2. From the list of all the options on the settings page, tap on the “Account” feature.
Step 3. Now, go to the “Account Transfer” section and simply turn on the feature to allow account transfer.
Step 4. Later, go back to the Account settings and tap on the Phone Number feature to make sure you have linked your LINE account to the same active number.
Step 5. Afterward, reinstall LINE on your target device and instead of registering as a new user, choose the existing user feature. Continue the account transfer process and get the transfer code.
Step 6. You will get the code as a text message on the registered number that you can enter to complete the LINE account transfer process.
Please note that this option will work for LINE 9.2.0 and the newer versions. Also, it will not move your LINE backup automatically. It will only transfer your LINE account and you need to transfer your LINE backup separately.
Part 3: LINE Account Transfer with Email
Just like the registered phone number, you can also do the LINE account transfer process by using your email as well. Though, this method will also transfer your account, but you can’t get your chats back just like that. For that, you need to backup your LINE chats and later restore them. If you just wish to do the LINE account transfer, then you can follow these steps.
Step 1. Firstly, just go to your LINE Settings > Account > Email Account Registration and make sure that your app is linked to an active email id.
Step 2. Afterward, go to the Account Transfer section in settings and turn on the feature (as stated above).
Step 3. Great! Once the Account Transfer feature is enabled, you can install LINE on the device and choose to log-in. Here, you need to enter the same email ID and password to log-in to your LINE account.
Step 4. In case if you forgot your password, then tap on the Forgot Password feature to set up a new password respectively.
Part 4: LINE Account Transfer with Facebook
Apart from a phone number and an email ID, LINE also lets us connect our account to Facebook as well. Therefore, you can also take the assistance of your linked Facebook to transfer your account in the following way.
Step 1. If you have not linked your Facebook account to LINE as of now, then go to its Settings > Account and tap on the “Link” option adjacent to the Facebook tab.
Step 2. Grant LINE the permission to access your Facebook account and you might be needed to log-in to your Facebook to complete the process.
Step 3. Afterward, you can go to your Account > Account Transfer settings and enable this feature.
Step 4. Install LINE on the same or any other device and while logging-in, choose to sign-in from your Facebook account. Just enter your Facebook account details on the screen to successfully transfer your account.
There you go! After reading this post, you would be able to do LINE account transfer in different ways. Though, if you don’t want to lose your data during the process, then just take the assistance of MobileTrans. With just a single click, it can backup your LINE chats to the computer that you can later restore to the same or any other iOS device.
