Extraction of WhatsApp Modified Versions: GB WhatsApp, FM WhatsApp, and OB WhatsApp

A WhatsApp mod apk is a modified version of the WhatsApp application. They are designed by third-party developers or individuals who want to incorporate additional functionality to the official WhatsApp version. There are a total of 10 modified versions but, in this release, we focused on the top 3 requested by our users.

GB WhatsApp, FM WhatsApp, and OB WhatsApp versions are extracted the same way as the official WhatsApp app from Android OS devices.

Investigators can expect the same evidence set as from the official WhatsApp and also several specific categories described below:

  • Auto Reply with all the auto-reply settings.
  • Message Scheduler that contains messages that are scheduled to be sent.
  • Mass Message Sender contains the list of bulk messages that are scheduled to be sent to a large number of people.
