During the last decade, the number of Android smartphone users has been increased rapidly. Cybercrime is also increasing since internet was established. Instant messenger is one of internet-based application that become a new media for cybercrime. Attempts to against cybercrime can be seen from the number of forensic tools. The problem is forensic tools for mobile device available today are not completely forensically sound. Examination of digital evidence on the forensic tool is one thing offered by many vendors. However, the forensic tools have various ways of examination. This paper performed research on the examination ability of two mobile forensic tools that commonly used, Oxygen and MOBILedit, in an examination of digital evidence from LINE messenger application. Both forensic tools have its ability to examine digital evidence and can be used based on the examiner’s needs. In this experiment, both forensic tools were assessed qualitatively based on a case study.
