Mobile devices have become commonplace, with 81% of Americans owning a smartphone in 2019 according to Pew Research Center. As such, mobile devices that are used for communication, photography, navigation, and other activities can provide crucial data for investigators.
However, the more important mobile device data is to investigations, the more devices are seized for analysis—and the less time forensic lab examiners have available to conduct analysis. This process can take days, weeks, or even months, depending on how backlogged the lab is.
Waiting on the lab analysis can leave investigators without the actionable information that social media, messaging, contact, location, browser, picture and video, and other data can provide, which is a barrier to making fast decisions.
