Mobile Phone Forensics In Modern Criminal Investigation

Mobile phone forensics are a crucial component of the modern criminal justice system. Mobile technology has reshaped communication, commerce, and social interaction in countless ways. While this technology has enabled faster, more accessible communication, easy financial management, entertainment, and various other benefits, mobile devices are also vulnerabilities and commonly used as tools for illegal activity. Mobile phone forensics can help identify telecommunications fraud and other types of criminal activity.

While most people use their mobile devices as phones, entertainment devices, and tools for banking, shopping, and organizing, others use them to commit various crimes, including: 

  • Identity theft prevention. If a user loses a device or someone steals it, the next user can extract personal information from the previous user, including things like the previous user’s Social Security number, banking details, and personal contacts.
  • Fraud investigations. Every type of fraud leaves some kind of paper trail, despite fraudsters’ best efforts to cover their digital tracks. Mobile phone forensics can uncover deleted data, collate specific data points to form trends for analysis, and corroborate other evidence in active fraud investigations.
  • Infidelity investigations. Mobile phone forensics have an undeniable place in the modern criminal justice system, but may also come into play in civil suits between private citizens. Mobile technology has made it easier for some people to cheat on their significant others, and mobile phone analysis has played pivotal roles in countless divorce proceedings throughout the country. Mobile phone forensics can prove infidelity and even come into play during divorce and child custody proceedings.
  • Data extraction. LATRO Cellular Forensics Lab can ensure a device has been completely wiped of all sensitive data. Even if you reset a mobile device to factory settings, the device will still contain traces of the previous user’s actions with the device. Data extraction is one of the best tools to prevent identity theft.
  • Uncovering criminal activity. Throughout recent years, cell phone data and mobile phone forensics have helped uncover human trafficking rings, drug smuggling networks, child abuse, and countless other criminal actions.
