With the password and PIN breaker you can gain access to locked ADB or iTunes backups with GPU acceleration and multi-threaded operations for maximum speed.

All-in-one tool used to gather evidence from phones
With MOBILedit Forensic Express, you can extract all the data from a phone with only a few clicks. This includes deleted data, call history, contacts, text messages, multimedia messages, photos, videos, recordings, calendar items, reminders, notes, data files, passwords, and data from apps such as Skype, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, Signal, WeChat and many others.

MOBILedit Forensic Express automatically uses multiple communication protocols and advanced techniques to get maximum data from each phone and operating system. Then it combines all data found, removes any duplicates and presents it all in a complete, easily readable report.



Huge number of supported phones
Since 1996 Compelson has supported an extremely wide range of phones manufactured over two decades. The software supports thousands of handsets including popular operating systems such as iOS, Android , Blackberry, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, Bada, Symbian, Meego, Mediatek, Chinese phones, and CDMA phones. The software can handle many feature phones without an OS. This includes older models from as far back as 1996, when development began and was the first of its kind in the world.

Integrate with other tools
We all know that it is a good practice to use multiple tools in a lab, so Forensic Express is designed with the ability to integrate with other forensic tools. Import and analyze data files exported from Cellebrite UFED and Oxygen reports to get even more data.
Export all data to UFED, so you can use the UFED Viewer or Analytics for further processing to move your investigation forward.

This tool also extracts all data from phones into open data format, so you get all the files directly as they are in the phone. This allows you to use other tools, including open source tools, to further analyze data and get even more evidence.

Physical data acquisition and analysis
In addition to advanced logical extraction Forensic Express also provides Android physical data acquisition, allowing you to extract physical images of investigated phones and have exact binary clones. Physical analysis allows you to open image files created by this process, or those obtained through JTAG, chip-off or other tools to recover deleted files plus all other deleted data where the product is known to be excellent.



Advanced application analysis
The use of apps to communicate and share has grown rapidly. Many apps are released or updated everyday. It is obvious that the analysis of apps is vital to retrieving as much evidence as possible. This is the strongest point of MOBILedit Forensic Express, with a large part of their team dedicated specifically for application analysis. Adaptive and in-depth methods are utilized to ensure you retrieve the most data available for each app - especially recovering deleted data. Data is analyzed for its meaning so you see it on a timeline as a note, a photo, a video or a flow of messages no matter what app was used to send them.

Deleted data recovery
Deleted data is almost always the most valuable information in a device. It often hides in applications, and because this is Compelson's strongest expertise, and they deliver great results in finding deleted data. Special algorithms look deeply through databases, their invalidated pages and within caches to find any data that still resides in a phone. MOBILedit Forensic Express retrieves the deleted data and presents it clearly in a special section of the report.

Fine-tuned reports
A tremendous amount of effort has been dedicated to refining reports so they are customizable, easy to read, concise and professional. An enhanced report configurator allows you to define exactly which data will be extracted from the phone and how the report will look. Each report is divided into sections, labeled with icons, pictures, and highlighted relevant data so you can find evidence quickly. A complete, configurable and comprehensive list of all events with a time-stamp is shown on a timeline and messages can be filtered by conversation or by contact names.

Reports are available in PDF, XLS, or HTML formats, and you can generate data exports compatible with the other data analysis tools you use in your lab, such as UFED.



Password breaker with GPU acceleration
Gain access to locked backups of a phone by using the password and PIN breaker. Passwords can be cracked by performing a dictionary attack using the built-in dictionary, or you can use your own dictionary for other languages. Password breaker uses GPU acceleration and multi-threaded operations for maximum speed. Although iOS has well-protected data due to its on-the-fly hardware encryption, MOBILedit Forensic Express is able to penetrate this protection and retrieve the data using the lockdown method.

Concurrent extractions and new 64-bit engine
The new 64-bit engine provides stability and the ability to analyze huge amounts of data, apps with hundreds of thousands of messages, photos and other items, plus several phones at once. Speed up your investigation process by extracting multiple phones at the same time, and generating multiple outputs for each one. All you need is a USB hub, cables and a computer powerful enough to perform concurrent jobs. You can finish a week's worth of work overnight!



Easy to use UI
Having the right tool is not enough, you need the right staff to work with it. The shorter the learning curve the better. Because Compelson has designed software for millions of consumers, it was a welcome challenge to make MOBILedit Forensic Express the most user-friendly forensic tool available. With a straightforward interface, each step is simple and guided with clear instruction. It is also optimized for touch screens allowing for easy use in the field.

Camera Ballistics - scientific image analysis
When combined with Camera Ballistics you are able to identify which images present on the analyzed phone were actually taken by the phone's camera using a sensor fingerprint. This process delivers new insight into the images such as make, model, GPS, camera settings, mean square error, fingerprint presence result, probability, and correlation which are all organized into a well designed and comprehensive PDF report suitable for submission as evidence.

iCloud analyzer
Now you can analyze backups of iOS devices stored in iCloud. Don't have the phone? Don't worry, you don't need it. Cloud Analyzer will locate all iOS backups in the cloud and let you choose which ones you want to extract, analyze and create reports for. Find crucial hidden evidence including deleted data, applications data and more directly from the cloud. All versions of iOS are supported, including two-factor authentication.

Photo Recognizer
This module automatically locates and recognizes suspicious content in photos such as weapons, drugs, nudity, currency and documents. Photo Recognizer utilizes artificial intelligence and deep machine learning to quickly analyze an unlimited number of photos, and is designed to eliminate countless hours that would be spent manually searching for key evidence in huge databases of photos. Each photo is placed in its own specific category so the investigator can keep the case well-organized and easily present the suspicious content in a fine-tuned report.



Reports in any language
