Oxygen Forensics, the worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices and cloud services, announced today the release of Oxygen Forensic® Detective 8.5.1 which supports data parsing from popular mobile app Pokémon Go.
Alexandria, VA – July 27, 2016 - With more than 15 million installs on the App Store and Google Play, researchers from Sensor Tower state that the average user in the US spends almost 33 minutes a day playing Pokémon Go which is more time than the average users spend using Facebook, Twitter or Snapchat.
“Over the past week and a half, Pokémon Go is the most popular search query on Google, and that simply means that mobile users are playing the game in droves,” said Lee Reiber, Oxygen Forensics COO. “The reason forensic experts are interested in the app is that it has already caused accidents and law enforcement personnel need the tools to access Pokémon Go data to determine whether the app being played contributed to any kind of accidents in specific situations.”
Oxygen Forensic® Detective 8.5.1 adds data parsing from Pokémon Go to the latest product update and allows experts to analyze user account information along with the app installation and last played timestamps. Location history is also available and enables experts to map a player’s route with corresponding timestamps.
