How to Know if Someone Added You on Line Chat

How to Know if Someone Added You on Line Chat

Hey there! Today, I want to talk about a topic that might be puzzling you: how to figure out if someone has added you on Line Chat. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

First things first, let’s chat about Line Chat. You might be wondering what it is. Well, Line Chat is a messaging platform that allows you to connect with your friends and loved ones. It’s pretty cool because you can send messages, make voice and video calls, and even share photos and videos.

Now, let’s get down to business. You’re probably wondering how you can find out if someone has added you on Line Chat. Well, it’s actually quite simple. When someone adds you on Line Chat, you will receive a notification. This notification will let you know that someone wants to connect with you on the app.

Here’s what you need to do: open Line Chat on your device and go to your chat list. If someone has added you, you will see a new chat with their name or phone number. This means that they have added you as a friend on Line Chat.

But wait, there’s more! Line Chat also lets you know if someone has added you by showing a little red dot next to the chat bubble. So, keep an eye out for that red dot. It’s a telltale sign that someone wants to connect with you.

Oh, and by the way, if you don’t want someone to add you on Line Chat, you can always decline their invitation. Simply tap on their chat and choose the option to decline. It’s as easy as that!

So, my friend, now you know how to tell if someone has added you on Line Chat. It’s a pretty nifty feature that allows you to stay connected with the people who matter to you. Keep an eye out for those notifications and red dots – they might just bring a smile to your face.

So, here’s the deal: when you add friends on the Line app, they won’t actually know that you did. And guess what? If someone adds you, you won’t even get a heads-up. It’s like a covert friendship operation.

But don’t fret! Just because there are no notifications doesn’t mean you can’t find out if someone added you as a friend. It’s just a little more inconspicuous, that’s all.

I’m here to spill the beans and tell you how to uncover those sneaky friend additions on Line, even without any official alerts being sent your way.

Unveiling Friend Recommendations

So, you wanna know who’s been eyeing your profile? Line’s got you covered with its ‘Friend Recommendations’ list. But wait, it’s not like your typical social media suggestions.

Line takes it a step further by showing you all the friends who have interacted with your profile in some way. Yep, that includes the following situations:

  1. If someone added you as a friend via the QR code
  2. If someone added you as a friend using your Line ID
  3. If someone searched your profile by using your phone number (without adding you)
  4. If someone shared your ID in a group chat

So, whoever did those actions will show up in your recommendations. You’ll also see a note below their ID explaining why they’re in your list of recommended friends.

Added by QR Code

Each Line profile has its own QR code. If someone scans your QR code and adds you as a friend, they will appear in your friend recommendations.

Your QR code is not public, so the only way for someone to find it is by:

  1. Opening Line.
  2. Tapping the ‘More’ icon (three horizontal dots).
  3. Tapping the ‘QR code’ icon on the top-right of the screen.
  4. Selecting ‘My QR Code’ at the bottom-right.
  5. They can either screenshot it and send it to others or show them the code in person for them to scan it right away.

If you share a screenshot of your QR code with others, it might end up in the hands of many people. So, if you start getting many suspicious recommendations with the note ‘Added you by QR code’, that’s probably why.

Added by Line ID

If you have a Line ID and someone adds you as a friend, they’ll also show up in your recommendations.

Since this is the most common way for users to add each other, it’s possible that everyone in your friend recommendations added you by finding your Line ID, especially if you’ve posted it online.

Users who add you via your Line ID will be labeled as ‘Added you by Line ID’.

  1. Open the Line app.
  2. Tap the ‘Settings’ (gear icon) on the top right of the screen.
  3. Go to ‘Edit profile.’
  4. Check if the ‘Allow others to add me by ID’ option is enabled.
  5. If you don’t want others to add you by your Line ID, uncheck the box.

Added by Phone Number

If someone adds you in Line through their contact list (meaning you’re already on their contact list), you’ll receive a notification. You’ll have to approve the request before you can start chatting. Users who add you from a contact list will be labeled as ‘Added you by phone number’.

You can prevent others from adding you via phone number by following these steps:

  1. Open the Line app.
  2. Select the ‘Friends’ tab on the bottom-left.
  3. Tap the ‘Add Friends’ icon on the top-right of the screen.
  4. Press the ‘Auto-add friends’ option.
  5. Disable ‘Allow others to add me’ by checking the checkbox next to it.

Now others won’t be able to add you through their contacts.

Are There Any Other Ways to Know if Someone Added You?

In fact, there’s only one instance where you can tell if someone added you. That’s if they use the ‘Shake’ method. This requires all nearby Line users to shake their phones, and they’ll automatically add each other.

You should already know these people since you all have to be in the same place at the same time. And besides getting the attention of onlookers, all shakers will appear on each other’s friends lists at the same time.

Be Careful with Your Information

Even if it seems tempting to share your QR code or Line ID online with many users, it might not always be the best idea.

But that really depends on how much you value your privacy and how much you trust other people’s intentions. If you have a store discount card, do you think the store would handle your shopping data any more responsibly than people who find your Line QR code? Curious minds want to know.
