If the past week has had you worried about the likes of Apple and Google squeezing data from your phone, then you should give this a read.
This should keep you on your toes..
UFED Physical Pro, a tool primarily used by law enforcers can practically suck all data off your phone, including those you have deleted. Shocking, isn’t it?! The good news is that you don’t have to worry if you’re not on the wrong side of the law. But, hey, if your actions spell danger, then this isn’t the best thing around. The Pro can carry in itself virtually all the data stored in your phone. This includes – text messages, emails, videos, photos, call logs, web searches, geo tags, and so on. Basically, the UFED Physical Pro will have the proof of your physical existence.
At the moment, the device can work on 3,000 types of phones completely eliminating the need for an intermediary computer. Once all the data is sucked out, the data can then be scanned through on a computer, very easily. Although, there is no taking back from the immense power it holds, it does lack ethics of usage, which should ideally come up soon.
