When an account is memorialized, its KakaoTalk profile will be maintained so that friends and family members can access it even if the user's phone number is unregistered.
A memorial account cannot be switched back to a normal account. Please read the following information carefully before applying for a memorial account.
[What are the benefits of a memorial profile?]
- The profile of the deceased user will be maintained and not converted to an Unknown account.
- An obituary notice can be made quietly without contacting friends and acquaintances.
- The KakaoTalk account of the deceased user can be maintained even if the user's phone number is unregistered.
- The profile can be used as a place to remember the deceased user.
[How will the KakaoTalk account of a deceased user be changed?]
- To protect the user's privacy, no one can log in with the deceased user's account.
- Messages cannot be sent or received, and the account cannot be used to log into sub-devices (windows, mac, ipad, android tablet, etc).
[How will the account be shown to his or her KakaoTalk friends?]
- The deceased user will be marked as a Remembered Friend in the Friends list, and the user's name, profile, background image, multi-profile settings and chat history will also be preserved.
- The deceased user will be removed from all chatrooms except for private chatrooms.
- The deceased user cannot be invited to a group chat.
- Chats in private chatrooms can be checked only by the sender, so the sender can use this chatroom as a place to remember the deceased user.
⚠️ A memorial profile can be maintained for 5 years and may be extended up to 10 years upon request. The user will be automatically unregistered afterwards.
⚠️ If the deceased user has already unregistered from KakaoTalk, a memorial profile cannot be used.
We hope that a memorial profile can help bring comfort and support to the bereaved family of a deceased user. May the user rest in peace.
With deepest sympathy…
In case a user passes away, KakaoTalk offers two options for the person's account based on the will of the user's family: unregistration or a memorial profile.
• Unregistration from Kakao Talk
When the family chooses unregistration, the user's account will be marked as "Unknown" just like other unregistered accounts, and the account will be deleted permanently.
• Memorial profile
If the family wants to memorialize the private chatroom and the profile, they can contact the Customer Service and request that the account be switched to a memorial profile.
