MOBILedit Forensic supports smartwatches made by manufacturers suchas Apple, Garmin, Samsung, TCL and others, via special readers which areavailable in our Smartwatch Kit.
Deleted data recovery Deleted data is almost always the most valuable information in a device. Itoften hides in applications; and because this is our strongest expertise, wedeliver great results in finding deleted data. Our special algorithms lookdeeply through databases, their invalidated pages and within caches to find anydata that still resides in a phone. MOBILedit Forensic retrieves the deleteddata and presents it clearly in a special section of the report.
Fine-tuned reports A tremendous amount of effort has been dedicated to refining reports so they arecustomizable, easy to read, concise and professional. An enhanced reportconfigurator allows you to define exactly which data will be extracted from thephone and how the report will look. Each report is divided into sections,labeled with icons, pictures, and highlighted relevant data so you can findevidence quickly. A complete, configurable and comprehensive list of all eventswith a time-stamp is shown on a timeline and messages can be filtered byconversation or by contact names. Reports are available in PDF, XLS, or HTMLformats, and you can generate data exports compatible with the other dataanalysis tools you use in your lab, such as UFED. Have a look on the samplereport.
Concurrent extractions and new 64-bit engine The new 64-bit engine provides stability and the ability to analyze huge amountsof data, apps with hundreds of thousands of messages, photos and other items,plus several phones at once. Speed up your investigation process by extractingmultiple phones at the same time, and generating multiple outputs for each one.All you need is a USB hub, cables and a computer powerful enough to performconcurrent jobs. You can finish a week’s worth of work overnight!
Malware detection The new Malware detection is based on the Yara project. Yaraworks on the basis of rules that describe any pattern of data, in our casepatterns that may indicate malware. MOBILedit Forensic applies these rules andsearches the file to see if it accomplish any of these rules, and returns a listof results. This means that it contains the data patterns described.
Easy to use UI Having the right tool is not enough, you need the right staff to work with it.The shorter the learning curve the better. Because we have designed software formillions of consumers, it was a welcome challenge for us to make MOBILeditForensic the most user-friendly forensic tool available. With a straightforwardinterface, each step is simple and guided with clear instruction. It is alsooptimized for touch screens allowing for easy use in the field.
Camera Ballistics – scientific image analysis When combined with Camera Ballistics you are able to identify which images present on the analyzed phonewere actually taken by the phone’s camera using a sensor fingerprint. Thisprocess delivers new insight into the images such as make, model, GPS, camerasettings, mean square error, fingerprint presence result, probability, andcorrelation will be organized into a well designed and comprehensive PDF reportsuitable for submission as evidence.

Huge number of supported phones
Since 1996 we have supported an extremely wide range of phones manufactured over two decades. The software supports thousands of handsets including popular operating systems such as iOS, Android , Blackberry, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, Bada, Symbian, Meego, Mediatek, Chinese phones, and CDMA phones. The software can handle many feature phones without an OS. This includes older models from as far back as 1996, when development began and was the first of its kind in the world.
Integrate with other tools
We all know that it is a good practice to use multiple tools in a lab. We’ve designed our software with the ability to integrate with other forensic tools. Import and analyze data files exported from Cellebrite UFED and Oxygen reports to get even more data.
Export all data to UFED, so you can use the UFED Viewer or Analytics for further processing to move your investigation forward.
MOBILedit Forensic extracts all data from phones also into open data format, so you get all the files directly as they are in the phone. This allows you to use other tools, including open source tools, to further analyze data and get even more evidence.
Message analysis and timeline
MOBILedit Forensic collects both standard and deleted message information sent by phone and displays it as a timeline. See all message information including who sent message text, what messenger program they used, and any attached media files.
Filter your results to find data faster
Get exactly what you are looking for by filtering extracted data by keyword, specific contacts, time, application or file name. Apply these filters to different data types and radically minimize the report size.
Bypass the passcode on iOS using the lockdown files method
Although iOS has well-protected data due to hardware encrypted on-the-fly, MOBILedit Forensic is able to go through this protection and retrieve the data. It supports importing the lockdown files that can be found on a suspect’s computer. These files are generated when you connect an iOS device to a PC and authorize the computer by typing the passcode. MOBILedit Forensic will instruct you on how to obtain these files. If you import the lockdown files to the computer where you make the acquisition, then you will be able to retrieve all data from the phone even if it is locked with a passcode.
Live View Data
This new feature allows you to live view content of a phone so you can browse and extract any file even before the batch extraction begins.
Standard edition is packed with the essentials – ideal for users who need a complete forensic tool, but might not need advanced functionality.
