Selective decoding is a new feature built into Cellebrite Physical Analyzer which assists in speeding up your examination process.

When using the “Selective Apps Decoding” feature, there are certain items that are automatically brought into the data collection such as device identity, location, calendar, SMS.

Once you choose “Examine Data”, Physical Analyzer will then scan and provide you with an additional list of apps that are available for examination. You can search for specific/multiple apps, or you can choose from the drop-down menu.

Using WhatsApp as an example, once Physical Analyzer is processing the data, it will provide you with the chats, user account information, media, contacts, calls, and an extraction summary associated with WhatsApp.

It not only provides you with the basic WhatsApp data but also other files and items associated with that device that may be important to your examination.
