Cellebrite was founded 20 years ago as a data extraction and analysis company for mobile devices.
Information posted on its website reveals that Cellebrite can also access data that has already been deleted from the phone or even recover information from damaged devices.
Israeli forensics firm Cellebrite is responsible for creating such a tool - the Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED), and the security company now claims it can unlock nearly of all of the latest Apple and Android smart devices thanks to its latest update.
Technology such as Cellebrite, which infiltrates data, including messages sent over encrypted applications like Signal or WhatsApp, can be used by authorities in the USA to get into suspects' phones, bypassing many security measures.
Israeli company Cellebrite claims it has developed a software that can unlock any iPhone, iPad or high-end Android smartphones. Which means the law enforcers and police officers would have the tool all by themselves to use after buying it.
Cellebrite is clear that it will sell its hacking tool to law enforcement agencies and governments trying to unlock devices used by criminals or terrorists.
