We live in a time of rapid and intensive changes, where information is seen as both the main resource and a critical infrastructure of a state. Necessarily, these changes also carry around retrograde processes, which manifest themselves as misuse of not just communications but of everything inside a communicational maneuver. In such cases, the protective role of digital forensics is both inevitable and highly necessary. In this paper, we elaborated the function of mobile telephony and its digital forensics, because right now, there are more than seven billion devices being used globally, more than there are people on earth.
