You can't check your LINE Official Account before passing review

The bot link feature can only be used after your LINE MINI App passes review. Therefore, you won't be able to check or display the option of adding your LINE Official Account as a friend before passing review.

Certified providers can turn on the option of adding as friend by default

Certified providers can turn on the option of adding their LINE Official Accounts as friends by default. This means that unless the user unchecks the box, the LINE Official Account linked to the channel will be added as a friend when the user authorizes it on the LINE MINI App consent screen.
