Let’s face it, we all have smartphones or mobile phones and we all use them for many business and personal tasks. Additionally, many people have one or more tablets that they use on a regular basis. These mobile devices often contain a person’s most private information. Additionally, they are used to access email accounts, send and receive text messages (SMS, MMS), iMessage messages, WhatsApp messages, Facebook Messenger messages and a host of other types of direct two-way communications. Based on this information, it is very important to include the preservation and examination of mobile devices in any ESI strategy.

Cell phones and mobile devices can reveal:

  • A user’s communications, through the messaging apps,
  • Thought processes, through the browser and search history,
  • Location, through various GPS metadata sources and app history,
  • Access to financial assets, through bank and other apps.
