Mobile Phone, Smartphone, Tablet Forensics and Data Recovery
Mobile phones, Smartphones, iPad and other tablets, netbooks, and iPods, whether iOS or Android based, are very credible sources of digital evidence. Files are downloaded to, or uploaded from devices all of the time. We are a mobile society, checking in when we eat, texting friends and family, or maybe even co-conspirators, making mobile devices ultimately important and relevant sources of digital evidence. In some instances, where perpetrators had enough foresight to avoid using computers and email, mobile devices like Androids or iPhones may be the only sources of some evidence.
At Global Digital Forensics, we have experience gathering electronic evidence from all types of mobile devices, from simple phones, to advanced smart phones and tablets. A new trend in mobile technology, Geotagging, also known as location services, utilizes the GPS capabilities of modern smartphones and tablets to “tag” images, or provide crucial 911 emergency services, which provide GDF forensics technicians with information on where a phone was when a GPS fix occurred. A digital “trail” of the device’s movement can often be constructed, opening a window into the acts and behavior of a subject.
