Mobile Device Forensics

Mobile device forensics is a branch of digital forensics that focuses on the recovery and analysis of data from mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. The goal of mobile device forensics is to extract and analyze evidence from these devices in a forensic manner, meaning that the evidence is collected and analyzed in a way that is admissible in a court of law.

Mobile device forensics involves the use of specialized tools and techniques to extract data from a mobile device, including both the device's memory and any external storage media, such as a SIM card or SD card. The extracted data can include text messages, call logs, contacts, photos, videos, and other types of digital evidence.

Mobile device forensics is often used in criminal investigations, as well as in civil and corporate cases, to uncover evidence related to cyber crimes, fraud, and other types of wrongdoing. It is also used to recover lost or deleted data, such as photos or text messages, for personal or business purposes.
