One of the main topics that is discussed today is how can a person leverage technology in a positive and secure way in order to enhance their lives. However, with improvements in technology comes challenges; the concern that people have over their privacy and the safeguard of sensitive information being the greatest. In fact, one of the most used technologies is the mobile, which can take different forms, features, and shapes and create, store, delete, and transfer various types of data that can be evidence for the forensics fields. As such, this chapter proposes a different approach to this field by conglomerating and researching for all the information available and aiming at building a comprehensive systematic literature review on the topics of forensics, digital and mobile device forensics using the PRISMA methodology, with the intent of supporting and enhancing the mobile device forensics investigation process and allowing for a more robust and up-to-date knowledge base by breaking through the techniques available.
