Android Forensics
Did you know?
Android is such a successful operating system that it is now used beyond the realm of mobile phones. It is used in laptops, satnavs and vehicle onboard computers. It is also used in other "smart" devices, from hi-tech fridges to satellites. This wide range of applications provides investigators with new challenges but also with a larger pool of which to extract evidence.
Android is the fastest rising operating system in the world of mobile telephones. It is so successful that for the first time in decades, laptops from large manufacturers are sold with Android as the operating system of choice, rather than Windows.

Android devices are introduced at unprecedented rates. By 2011 it was the most widely installed operating system in mobile phones and by 2013, more mobiles were running android, than iOS, Mac OS and Windows combined.

This dramatic increase means that investigators need to focus more and more on investigating and analyzing Android devices. The fact that the OS is an open source one, means that people can install custom made software, and alter parts of the source code. This brings new challenges in security, data integrity and recovery.

Strathclyde Forensics has been working on Android devices, and our people keep up to date with all the latest developments in the industry. Our expertise allow us to safely investigate Android devices, and recover data (such as call records, text messages, internet browsing, emails, photos, videos etc.) in a forensically sound way. We can also recover and present to court information about the handset's location, based on geodata recovered from the phone,
