With cloud forensics picking up, Google has become one of the most important sources of information about anyone who uses one or more Android devices – or doesn’t use Android at all. Google Account aggregates information about the user’s online behavior and offline activities, analyzes their communication, recommending places to visit and things to read. Comprehensive location history of the user, all Google searches ever launched on all mobile and desktop devices, Chrome bookmarks and browsing history, credit card data and purchase history, travel data including air tickets, hotel stays and car rentals (even if not booked through Google itself), all Hangouts conversations and much more data┬áis collected, stored and used by Google. The various pieces of information are kept in multiple places, are accessible via vastly different protocols and require Google authentication. By attending this session, you’ll learn how to extract all this information in its entirety without using a browser.
