Kik Messenger extraction via Android Agent

Now you can quickly collect Kik Messenger contacts as well as private and group chats from any unlocked Android device using Android Agent. It can be installed on a device via USB, WiFi, or OTG device.

Once the acquisition process is finished, the Android Agent extraction can be imported into Oxygen Forensic® Detective for review and analysis.

Semantic Location History parsing

There are two sources of location data in a Google Takeout: The location History file and Semantic Location History files created for every month.

Semantic Location History data can now be fully parsed by Oxygen Forensic® Detective when the Google Takeout file is imported. Semantic Location History files contain detailed information about the account owner’s visited locations and journeys.


Data Analysis

Comparison of call and message logs with CDR

Oxygen Forensic® Detective v.15.0 presents a new analysis tool – the ability to compare call and message logs extracted from a device with Call Data Records provided by mobile service providers.

This feature is useful in situations when calls or messages have been manually deleted from a device. Using this comparison tool, you can fill in the gaps and see the complete picture.

To perform the comparison, go to the Timeline section and select the “Compare call and message logs with call data records” option in the Smart Filters. Once you select the devices and CDRs for comparison, the software will show you calls and messages in one list, in chronological order.
