Mobile Device Forensics
Mobile devices today are not simply phones or tablets; they are miniature computers storing thousands of bits of data that users never see. For example, GPS location information may be stored at the time text messages are sent, pictures taken, or social media accessed. A skilled forensic investigator can recover this hidden information to track someone’s movements and activities, in chronological order. This evidence is extremely useful when determining a person’s level of truthfulness or assessing culpability and intent.
