100+ Free Computer Forensic & Cyber Security Tools

Forensic Control, a London-based cybersecurity & computer forensics company, first created this public list of free computer forensic software in 2011. It was last updated on 28 Ocotber 2019. Updates are announced at twitter.com/ForensicControl.


We’re happy to receive suggestions for inclusion on this list. The software must be free and unrestricted, that is, fully functional and not time-limited. Please send your suggestions to andrew@forensiccontrol.com.

The for reference section lists applications that appear to be no longer maintained, but may still be of use. If you require any assitant with computer forensics you can book a computer investigation online. Alternatively, if you're in the UK and need support with Cyber Essentials we also provide support plans for this.
