Cell Phone Forensics in Los Angeles

On average, three out of every four adults in the United States own a cell phone. Today, people use their cell phones for everything from phone calls and text messages to taking photos and searching the internet. When properly gathered, reviewed, and documented, evidence from a mobile phone or its data can save investigators time.  In fact, it can even make or break a court case. 

Because people don’t generally think twice about how they use their phones or to cover their tracks when it comes to mobile usage, a great deal of information can be recovered from a mobile device. When you know how and where to look, the data can uncover where they have been and who they have been talking to. Additionally, their photos can often reveal the real narrative of what they have done.  

Some information we look for:       

  • Which cell towers handled a call, SMS, multimedia messaging content, or internet browsing data
  • The geographical location of and time when specific calls were made
  • The geographical location of the cell phone at its latest location
  • The type of call and the number contacted. We can also trace the numbers from incoming calls, including missed call history.
  • The phonebook or contact lists
  • Videos, pictures, and audio files
  • The actual metadata of a photo
  • To-do lists, calendar entries, notes
  • Internet browsing history, cookies, search history, content, and analytics information
  • User-created data such as documents, presentation files, spreadsheets, and more
  • Data from installed apps
  • Deleted data from the sources mentioned above

Software for extracting and visualizing data found on tablets, smartphones, and other devices has dramatically improved. These recent developments are giving investigators added capability to solve cases quickly. Combined with the support of experts, investigators are now looking into the analysis of cloud data, computers, and network traffic.

Collecting evidence without the proper training and experience may render it useless for a court case.
