Built-in web browsers have existed on mobile phone handsets for many years before the iPhone came along and brought mobile phone Internet browsing to the masses. Internet artefacts can prove a rich source of evidence but can sometimes be overlooked during an investigation; either because the examiner didn’t know that such artefacts could be recovered or didn’t know how to find and interpret them.
Our new Built-in Mobile Phone Web Browsers page provides details on which web browser is pre-installed on which handset model (something which is often less than obvious!). The page also points examiners to where within the device’s file system the artefacts are located.
Our Phone Forensics Deconstructed training course teaches mobile phone examiners how to find, recover and interpret Internet artefacts from mobile phones.
