Instant Messaging (IM) is one of the most used types of applications across all digital devices, and is an especially popular feature on smartphones. This research is about the artifacts left by Samsung's ChatON IM application, which is a multi-platform IM application. In this work, we acquired forensic images of a Samsung Galaxy Note device running Android 4.1 and an iPhone running iOS 6. The acquired images were analyzed and the data relevant to the ChatON application were identified. This research resulted is a map of the digital evidence left by ChatON on these mobile devices which assists digital forensics practitioners and researchers in the process of locating and recovering digital evidence from ChatON.
