Acquire, extract and decrypt WhatsApp databases

Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp is a tool to download, display and decrypt WhatsApp communication histories from iPhones and Android devices. The tool automatically acquires a WhatsApp database from physical devices, local and cloud backups, decrypts information and displays contacts, messages, call history and pictures sent and received.

Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp comes with a host of acquisition options. The product can use all available sources for extracting WhatsApp history. WhatsApp conversations can be extracted from various sources:

- Android smartphones with and without root access
- Plain and encrypted iTunes backups (providing that you know the password)
- iOS cloud backups from Apple iCloud (if you have the original Apple ID and password of that account)
- WhatsApp proprietary cloud backups stored in iCloud Drive

When acquiring iOS cloud backups, Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp can automatically extract WhatsApp databases from multiple devices registered to the same Apple ID.

Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp comes with the ability to download proprietary WhatsApp backups maintained in iCloud Drive. These backups are not device-specific; however, multiple WhatsApp backups may be available if several WhatsApp accounts (with different phone numbers) are registered within a certain Apple account. The ability to extract standalone WhatsApp backups from iCloud Drive is unique to Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp.

Should you encounter an encrypted backup, Elcomsoft Explorer for WhatsApp can automatically decrypt WhatsApp information. In order for the decryption to work, the correct password is required. Viewing, searching and filtering of extracted WhatsApp databases is available.

The built-in WhatsApp viewer enables viewing the content of multiple WhatsApp databases. Advanced searching and filtering allow locating contacts or messages by entering a key word, and locating conversations that occurred within a certain date range.
