Mobile device seems to be smaller as compared to laptop and personal computers but performs almost every task that is performed on computer, such as internet connectivity, transferring files, multimedia file sharing, online shopping and transactions, booking of hotel/flight tickets, trading in stock exchange, email services etc. Organizations have an ever increasing amount of information/ data that is shared via various sources available in the market. The analysis of mobile phone is challenging at technical, legal and evidential level. Lack of technical knowledge of handling tools may lead to damage of crucial evidence while lack of standard legislation imposes legal challenges. Extracting and preserving evidence present on mobile device in proper manner is also important. Noting down each and every step/ activity performed while carrying forensic process is essential, therefore documentation is necessary. Forensic tools play crucial role in the process as they are used in almost every phase of the process, so the examiner must have complete knowledge of the tool and their working.
