0 Views 0 min read

Do you have some important messages in your Line app? Do you want to back them up in a safe place so that you can restore them when accidental data loss happens? Or do you want to make a copy of Line chat history and then delete them so that you can free more space for your device?

If your answer is YES, this guide will present several simple ways to back up Line chats on Android and iPhone.

Part 1. 2 Ways to Back Up Line on iPhone

On an iPhone, you have two options to back up Line chat history. The first method is use iCloud, and another is to take screenshots of the wanted chat history. Each way has its pros and cons and can meet different needs. Now, you can check out our following instructions and select the right way you want. 

Method 1. Back Up Line Chat History to iCloud

iCloud is the straightforward way to back up your Line chats and attachments. It is convenient and easy to use. But on the downside, it doesn't allow you to access and view backup files unless restoring them to your iPhone or iPad. Besides, iCloud only offers 5GB of free storage for each user. Therefore, if you have a lot of photos or videos to back up, you might need to purchase more storage space before backing up. 

The pros and cons of using iCloud to back up Line chat history have been introduced above. If you think iCloud is the right option for you, don't hesitate to follow these steps to back up your Line chats. 

Before proceeding, you need to make sure:

  • Your iPhone or iPad is running iOS 8.1 or higher
  • The Line version is 6.4.0 or later
  • You've enabled iCloud Drive on your iPhone. If you haven't enabled this option, go to your Settings > [your name] > iCloud and enable iCloud Drive.

Step 1. Open the Line app on your iPhone or iPad. 

Step 2. Tap "More" > "Settings" (or "Chat Settings" on some devices) > "Chats" ( or Chats & Voice Calls).

Step 3. Select "Chat History Backup" > " Back Up Now."

Step 4. Then, your Line chats will be backed up to iCloud.

Method 2. Back Up Line Chat by Taking a Screenshot

Another indirect way to back up important Line chat history is to take a screenshot of important chats and then store the images in a safe place. The image includes all information, including the image and name of the conversation partner and the chatting time. However, this method is time-consuming if you need to back up many chats. If you prefer this way, follow these steps to take a screenshot.

Such an app enables you to select conversations by Date and Type, which is excellent for people who want to back up specific chat history or want to save Line chats as a text file. If you don't mind installing a dedicated backup app on your Android, follow these steps.

Step 2. Launch your Line app and open the chat you wish to back up.

Step 3. Tap the arrowhead icon at the top-right corner of your screen and select "Chat Settings."
