    To avoid any issue related to the termination of LINE Login V1, please make sure to update your service to the latest LINE Login version. Please see the following page for more details on the latest LINE Login version.

    Social API overview

    Please also notice that the LINE user identifier is different between LINE Login V1 and LINE Login V2 or higher. If you are using the V1 user identifier on your service, you will need to convert the user identifier to use the latest LINE Login version. Please see the following page for more details on how to convert the LINE user identifier.
