Mobile Phone Forensics

With an ever-increasing number of adults owning a smartphone, it is no wonder that more and more crime investigations now commonly require mobile device evidence collection and analysis. Most frontline agents own smartphones themselves and they likely have some familiarity with how to operate different types of devices but collecting mobile device evidence on-scene can be challenging, especially in volatile, high pressure, or time-based environments.

ADF makes collecting smartphone evidence easy thanks to mobile phone forensics tools. ADF mobile forensics software leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to simplify complex digital evidence investigation tasks, helping organizations uncover actionable intelligence within seconds and minutes.
