【Can’t view free LINE stickers】Can’t see stickers by VPN? Must we register phone number on LINE?

You can’t view some LINE stickers anymore. That’s because LINE Corporation has changed rules for getting stickers. For example, some free stickers, which you used to view them as long as you connected VPN to other regions, require registration of phone number in specific region. Even so, there’s no need to be upset because you can still view free stickers by adding the official account as friend or installing an APP.

Now, let’s have a test to see the difference between LINE account with registration of phone no. and without registration of phone no..

Take Sticker Shop in Taiwan for example.

Left: LINE account without registration of phone number.
Right: LINE account with registration of phone number.
Free stickers without any requirement only appear on “New”.

▼ Without registration of phone number on LINE, even though you click on URL of stickers, you can’t own stickers still.

*LINE will detect the region of your phone no.. And then, stickers of that region will show on Shop. If you don’t register phone no., LINE will detect the region of your network. In other words, if you use local number of another country, stickers in that country are all available for you. However, the problem is that few people have phone numbers of India, Japan, Korea, Thailand or Indonesia.

*Free stickers requiring adding as friend and installing APP are still available. If you want to view these stickers, just connect your mobile to overseas server.
