Some people are intimidated when they hear the words ‘cloud’ and ‘digital evidence,’ and immediately start to worry. There is not as much to worry about as one might believe when it comes to actually collecting the data. The worry comes into play on the legal restrictions that you might have to accessing the data.

This online quick training will walk you through the process that is used by Paraben Corporation in the E3 Platform of using the Authentication Data collected to import the cloud credentials associated with a variety of apps. Since many of the most popular smartphone apps have moved to the cloud for their data storage, this is a crucial step that shouldn’t be overlooked when processing a device.

The following are Apps that are currently supported for collection through the Paraben Cloud Import wizard of the E3 Platform:
