Many mobile phone users choose to share Advertiser ID information with app
developers and social media companies. This includes precision handset
geolocation information. Advertiser ID handset geolocation information is
separate and distinct from handset geolocation information collected by cellular
carriers, by Google for Android OS devices, or on iOS handsets in Significant
Locations. Commercially available Advertiser ID information can be used during
criminal investigations to determine if a handset was at multiple crime scenes
near the times of those crimes and to determine specific locations where a
handset was previously located. This Webinar will discuss Advertiser IDs, show
where Advertiser ID controls are located on iOS and Android OS handsets, outline
investigative use and considerations, and detail specific instances when
evidence collected from commercially available Advertiser ID information was
used during the investigations of serious crimes.
