Connect Wi-Fi

Connecting Android phones via Wi-Fi

Download the MOBILedit Forensic Android Connector application from our User Portal.
Now start the connection app on your phone and follow the steps below:

  1. Ensure the Wi-Fi is turned on, and the device and workstation are connected to the same network.

  2. Run MOBILedit Forensic and click on the Connect button. 

  3. Select Phone – Wi-Fi Connection and then enter the IP address as displayed in the app on the phone.

  4. Allow the connection on your phone if the key corresponds with the key in Connection Wizard.

  5. Once your phone is identified, click on the “Finish” button and the device will connect automatically.

Be aware that it is not possible to activate a phone with Android 10 OS with a single phone licence through wifi. However, if you activate a phone through a cable, you will be able to use it with wifi later.

If your working practises do not allow for your workstation or network to be internet connected (air-gapped), you can still connect via Wi-Fi by using a standalone Wi-Fi router not connected to the internet.
