Some investigative methods in technical tracking
  • Through the company hosting the account or the website (Facebook, Instagram, snapchat, ....)
  • Through social engineering, this method depends on individual skill and is characterized by its difficulty in terms of effort and time.
  • Through digital recorders (Logs), electronic message sources and digital traces.
  • By collecting information and data and identifying the user's digital identity.
  • The digital address (IP) with a specific time and date represents a very important digital evidence in identifying the user, and the digital address can only be translated into the user's name through the Internet service provider.
  • It is not possible to provide more than one digital address with a specific time and date as a result of the technical tracking process, regardless of the different methods.
  • In some cases, the digital address on which the call was made can be provided as a maximum.
