Birthday boards are displayed on a friend’s birthday. 

How to receive birthday cards

If you would like to receive birthday cards, then you have to let your friends know when your birthday is. To do that, register your birthday on LINE. 

Register your birth date on LINE

Go to Settings > Profile > Birthday, enter your date of birth, and toggle “Show my birthday” on.   

Note: While you need to turn on “Show my birthday” for the birthday features to work, you do not have to toggle “Show my birth year.”  


Celebrate your friend’s birthday and put a smile on their face by trying the new birthday feature!
