What is Letter Sealing? toggle
Letter Sealing is a feature that provides end-to-end encryption (E2EE) for chat room messages. E2EE is a communication system designed so that messages saved on our servers are encrypted and cannot be read by anyone except the sender and receiver of the message.

Once the sender and receiver have both turned on Letter Sealing, they will be able to start sending messages with added security.

The following information will be encrypted:

• Text messages (not including messages sent through other services)
• Location information
• 1-on-1 free voice calls
Note: We plan to expand Letter Sealing’s functionality in the future.

If you use LINE for PC after turning on Letter Sealing, you'll be required to verify your identity the first time you send a message.

To verify your identity, please refer to the following Help article:

About Letter Sealing key fingerprints toggle
Key fingerprints are unique encryption keys that Letter Sealing gives to each user so they can send messages to one another safely and securely.
Note: The actual keys are kept secret and will not appear in LINE chat rooms.

If your key fingerprint matches that of your friend, it means your chat is securely encrypted. To check whether your key fingerprint matches that of your friend, please follow the steps below.
Note: Key fingerprint confirmation is optional.

1. Tap your friend's name at the top of the chat room.
2. Under "This chat is protected with Letter Sealing.", tap View your encryption keys.
3. Compare the key fingerprints on your device and your friend's device.
Note: To compare key fingerprints with your friend, we recommend meeting face-to-face or using a form of communication you trust.

If "This chat is protected with Letter Sealing." doesn't appear, it means Letter Sealing is turned OFF. To turn Letter Sealing ON, please follow the steps in the Help article below.
