Weekly output: DriveSavers vs. locked smartphones

12/6/2018: For $3,900, DriveSavers says it can open locked smartphones, The Parallax

My one post to get published this week (as opposed to three others filed and now in various stages of editing) tried to unpack the puzzling claim by the data-recovery firm DriveSavers that its Password Lockout Data Recovery service could unlock any Android or iOS phone to allow a rescue of the data on the device. The experts I talked to had no solid idea what DriveSavers was talking about–not that the firm’s vague descriptions gave them much to work with–but they did share some theories of how DriveSavers might go about this task.
