Oxygen Forensic® software has a powerful built-in interface for data search. Searching can be conducted on all devices, at the case level and at the device level. Investigators can search data according to the information entered in the input field, by keyword lists, hashes, using regular expressions or choosing any other available method. Search is launched as a separate process so investigators are free to work with the software during the search process.  

The search process can search within files to uncover data that has not been parsed, often uncovering valuable data within SQlite databases, log files, and property lists.


The device information section gives you the general information about the acquired device. It shows various attributes, like the device specifics (e.g., make, model), SIM and network information, phone numbers and case details. Investigators can also find summary information of all the device owner’s accounts. Moreover, the Statistics tab shows the detailed statistics about extraction: Top 10 applications with the greatest number of communications, Top 10 groups, Top 10 contacts, Last contacted, Key Evidence with tags and notes.
