Data extraction from applications on Xiaomi and Huawei: Signal, Wickr, 1Password

After Passware Kit Mobile recovers the Xiaomi or Huawei device lock password, it immediately extracts user and application data: Signal, Wickr, and 1Password records.

Saving decrypted data as DAR for MediaTek devices with file-based encryption

At the end of data extraction process, Passware Kit Mobile now provides a choice of formats to save the decrypted data, depending on the device encryption settings. For MediaTek devices protected with file-based encryption, there is an option to save the data as a DAR archive, which preserves the integrity of the file system and is widely supported by forensic applications.

Support for iOS 15.7.1-16.3 and improved stability on Apple devices

Passware Kit Mobile extends the range of iOS versions supported by adding iOS 15.7.1-16.3, excluding iPads with A10/A10X chips.
