Oxygen Forensics Introduces New Method of Decrypting WhatsApp Data With Release of Oxygen Forensic® Detective 10.2

Alexandria, VA – May 08, 2018Oxygen Forensics, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices, cloud services and drones, announced today that Oxygen Forensic®® Detective 10.2 can now acquire a WhatApp Cloud token from Android devices.

Two months ago, Oxygen Forensics announced Oxygen Forensic® Detective 10.1 that featured the ability to help decrypt WhatsApp iCloud or Google backups with a token. If a key file that is required for backup decryption cannot be obtained, Oxygen Forensic® Detective can create a WhatsApp authentication token and use it to decrypt backups stored within the iCloud and Google Cloud services.

Now, with Oxygen Forensic® Detective 10.2, investigators can use a WhatApp Cloud token from an Android device to decrypt WhatsApp backups from Android devices, WhatsApp Google Drive, as well as iCloud backups associated with the same phone number. 

“Our product development team is constantly working on new features every single day,” said Lee Reiber, COO, Oxygen Forensics. “The new WhatsApp decryption method leaves no digital trace and is a good alternative to the commonly used method with the key file. With this token, forensics experts can also acquire undelivered messages and unanswered calls directly from the WhatsApp Server which can also help the investigators put the pieces together to solve crimes.”
