Import Snapchat My Data Into Oxygen Forensic® Detective

Snapchat is a popular social media app where users are able to send images that disappear after being viewed. In July 2022, the company reported that they had 347 million daily active users, an increase of 18% from the previous year.

Oxygen Forensic® Detective allows Snapchat data extraction directly from Android and Apple iOS devices. Moreover, investigators can import and parse Snapchat Warrant Returns that include the following information:

  • Information about the user account
  • Login history
  • Private chats, including sent and received media
  • Group chats, including sent and received media


Starting with Oxygen Forensic® Detective v.15.1, investigators can now import and parse Snapchat My Data that can be collected using the Snapchat Download My Data function.
