Hello, this is Shiho.

How are you doing? I have been fighting with my friends over little things.

I know that it means I have good enough relationship to fight with them.

It happens too often, though.

 

I keep in touch with my friends over LINE. I tend to “hide” them whenever we have a fight.

Today, I am going to show you how to “hide” or “block” someone on LINE.

 

Why do you choose to “hide” them, rather than “block” in LINE app?

Do you happen to know the difference between “hide” and “block”?

Let me simply explain.

When you hide someone

The person is deleted from your “Friends” list on LINE

You can receive “Chats” messages from the person

 

When you block someone

The person is deleted from your “Friends” list on LINE

You cannot receive “Chats” messages from the person

 

Did you get that?

In other words, the person is deleted from your “Friends” list whichever you choose. The difference is either you can receive “Chats” messages or not.

When you have a fight with your friend, you may feel that you do not want to see even his/her name on LINE. In that case, you can simply “hide” them, so that you can anytime “display” to unhide them whenever you get their apologies.

They do not even know that you have “hided” them earlier.
