Using LINE Safely and Securely Using LINE Safely and Securely

LINE aims to be a safe and fun tool to communicate with people close to you

LINE is a messaging app used worldwide, with a strong presence in Asia.
We started the service after the earthquake that devastated Japan on March 11, 2011, to respond to the demand for a communication tool with global reach that could deepen our relations and strengthen our bonds with those important to us such as family, friends and lovers.
This website offers basic information about LINE as well as tips and tools for creating a safe environment in which all people can enjoy connecting with people close to them through LINE. The website also provides information for parents and educators on how to protect minors from harm, as well as presents information on LINE’s initiatives.
