TikTok Forensics: Extracting Data from the Most Popular App
If an account is secured with two-factor authentication (2FA), the investigator may obtain an SMS code on the device or get the code on the account owner’s e-mail. It is also possible to extract data utilizing a proxy.
Alternatively, an investigator can import credentials or tokens from the Oxygen Forensic® Detective Accounts and Passwords section of extraction by clicking on Extract with the Cloud Extractor button located on the toolbar.
Once authorized, investigators can proceed to extract data, such as user account information, contacts, coins, login history, notifications, private messages, uploaded content, liked posts, comments, and files.
TikTok Cloud vs App
Both iOS and Android TikTok apps are supported in Oxygen Forensic® Detective. We recommend extracting data from both the app and the cloud since the datasets differ slightly.
For example, cookies and cache can only be extracted from a mobile device, whereas notifications and all liked videos are only available from the cloud because they are not stored locally on the device.
With over a billion users, Oxygen Forensic® Detective TikTok data extraction was developed to help law enforcement successfully extract and analyze data that could help make this world a safer place.
