In this video from our Android Mobile Forensics online course, your instructor Divya Lakshmanan will take you through the Android boot process. Understanding this element of the Android system can be crucial when analyzing a device - this video will answer all your questions!
Do you ever speculate whether your mobile phone knows more about you than your best friend? Endlessly (or rather mindlessly), we take every chance we get to peep into our screens – at work, on the subway, while standing in line or even while cooking a meal! We routinely input so much data into our phone, that a mobile phone behaviorist (likened to a human behaviorist aka psychologist), aka a proficient mobile forensics investigator, can build a healthy dossier just by waving the magic forensic wand over a mobile phone of interest.
Keeping that in mind, some mobiles devices running the Android operating system find their way into an ongoing investigation – simply because of the fact that cyber criminals cannot do without a mobile phone. This course will train you to approach an Android mobile device forensically.
