These days pretty much everyone has a hand held mobile device, whether it is a smart phone, PDA or laptop, if it’s portable, it carries information and data that is personal and specific to one user. Because smart phones are such a personal digital device and is seldom shared, it offers forensic investigators an excellent source of evidence, especially when it is difficult to place a suspect behind a computer.
Mobile phones offer up evidence of text messaging, emails, phone calls and also contain a history of internet searches, along with the habits of the individual posting to and trolling social media sites, which makes them a highly valuable source of information in any investigation.
If you have watched a couple of episodes of CSI or other detective series, you will know that mobile phones are often the only digital footprint that can trace an individual’s movements and even lead to insight into motives.
