Extracting Artifact Data from Zoom

Magnet Forensics Axiom is a forensics tool which can be used to collect and analyze data from computers and smartphones. Chat messages and web browsing history can be pulled from iPhones and Androids, and data can be recovered from apps like SnapChat.

It also can collect artifact data from Zoom software installed on a Windows PC, or mobile phones. The artifact data differs from the actual user added content in that rather than being content the user intentionally creates and views, it is the data that is left behind from the use of the application.

With the login info for the system Zoom was installed on, Axiom can decrypt artifact data to thread chat messages together.

The artifact data can serve as a record showing who exchanged messages and when they were exchanged.
