The Instant Messaging (IM) application is one of the most widely used communication methods in the world. It is used by a wide range of age groups and backgrounds. Its extensive use in everyday life provides unique opportunities but means that it can also be used to commit crime such as cyber bullying or by becoming a medium for criminals’ communication. It can, however, also be used by forensic investigators to profile the users behavior. This makes it essential for forensics researchers to study artifacts left by such applications. This paper studies the artifacts left by one such popular application - LINE. The aim of this paper is to provide a road map for forensic investigators when dealing with LINE IM application artifacts. The artifacts are discussed in two parts: the first examines regular chatting mode and the second, private chatting.
