    Did you ever receive an answer about ".chartboost"? Do you at least know what app it comes from?

    Hey guys. I deleted .chartboost
    No negative affects whatsoever. It only appears because of games, it's a cache.
    Hope this helps

    Great, but your post was back in January. Have there been any negative repercussions since then? Apps not working properly? Etc?

    It's just like what sholiday mentioned.
    Re-confirming that the .chartboost folder can be safely deleted.

    From my looking around, it is the cache folder for the ads you see in games with the Chartboost ads monetization platform.

    Good Effects in deletion:
    - recover some storage space
    - get rid of old, unused ads (if any; oldest I found was just June 9)

    Bad Effects in deletion:
    - playing games with those ads will:
    --- slow down ads-loading
    --- re-download ads from the internet, which consumes data (around 750KiB to 3MiB per video)


    You can check how large the ads are by, well, checking the contents of the folder itself. It should be in somewhere like "/storage/emulated/0/", or basically when you open up your internal storage device for viewing.
    You must have the option to "Show hidden files" to be able to see & access the folder.

    I was looking through its files. Inside I have a couple of folders.
    Css, Html, images, js, templates and videos. In the image folders there are adds images. In the video there is only one video and its pretty random. In the html css... there are .files. I guess deleting is good

    If you don't need those images and/or videos, delete all the CSS, HTML, image, js, template and video files. It sounds as if someone was trying to develop a web page on your phone.
