WhatsApp database decrypt via cloud and token from any Android device

WhatsApp Messenger is a freeware and cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP service owned by Facebook. WhatsApp is a very popular application in social networks but sometimes it is challenging for digital forensic investigators to decrypt WhatsApp databases from Android devices. An Android device stores a database file named msgstore.db.crypt12 that is encrypted by WhatsApp. WhatsApp backups are made in Android devices and decrypted in the Cloud Extractor via phone number or WhatsApp Cloud token.

One such application is WhatsApp, which over various versions has tried to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of messages sent and received using WhatsApp. A db.crypt12 file is a database file used by WhatsApp Messenger. It stores encrypted messages of chat history. It is used by WhatsApp to secure a user’s message on the Android device. WhatsApp uses a different algorithm to encrypt the database file. Each new version of the WhatsApp application uses a different algorithm to encrypt the database.

The db.crypt12 database files are located in

/internal memory or sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases.
