What law enforcement can learn from your smartphone

You may not realize it, but your smartphone contains a wealth of information. Everything from texts and e-mails to where you go, plus health and sleep information. That includes data you’ve deleted. “Even though you’ve deleted the content, it’s actually still there, and the file system still can see it,” said James Aquilina, a former federal prosecutor. That data has become a source of debate as law enforcement fights device-makers like Apple for access for the purpose of criminal investigations. No matter where you stand on privacy issues, law enforcement has many tools to recover deleted information.

Victims testify at molestation trial

Troup County Senior Assistant District Attorney Lynda Caldwell brought in a representative from Cellebrite — a company that provides equipment capable of extracting data, and transferring and analyzing information from devices like cellphones — to testify. The police used the Cellebrite services to obtain text messages sent and received, track phone calls and download Internet sites visited from the cellphone. Investigators also used extracted text and calls from a cellphone reportedly used by the 11-year-old victim. If text messages are deleted from a phone, they will sometimes, but not always, appear on a report utilizing a Cellebrite device, the expert told the jury.

Texting and Driving? Watch Out for the Textalyzer

Over the last seven years, most states have banned texting by drivers, and public service campaigns have tried an array of tactics — “It can wait,” among them — to persuade people to put down their phones when they are behind the wheel. Yet the problem, by just about any measure, appears to be getting worse. A proposed law in New York would allow police to use mobile forensics technology in much the same way they use a Breathalyzer – with the help of Cellebrite.
