ElcomSoft Recovers Deleted Notes from iCloud

MOSCOW, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. updates Elcomsoft Phone Breaker, the company’s mobile acquisition tool, with the ability to recover deleted notes from the user’s iCloud account. ElcomSoft has discovered that any notes that are marked as “deleted” are being kept in the cloud for undefined periods of time, way past the advertised 30-day period. Both Windows and Mac versions of Elcomsoft Phone Breaker can now extract deleted notes directly from the user’s iCloud account. The oldest note extracted with Elcomsoft Phone Breaker was five years old.


Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 6.50 is the only tool on the market that can access notes deleted more than 30 days ago. While users can still access notes they’ve deleted by checking the Recently Deleted folder, that folder only contains notes deleted up to 30 days ago. Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 6.50 goes way beyond that.

In addition, ElcomSoft updates Elcomsoft Phone Viewer, the company’s lightweight forensic tool to help experts view and analyze information extracted with Elcomsoft Phone Breaker. The updated Viewer adds the ability to filter existing and deleted notes.

“We did it again,” says Vladimir Katalov, ElcomSoft CEO. “After recovering deleted photos and Safari browsing history from iCloud, we now add the ability to recover deleted notes from the same source regardless of how much time has passed after the deletion. The oldest record we’ve been able to pull was deleted back in 2012.”
