Locate stored and collected app data or metadata from Android Oreo
I'm hoping that someone on here can help me please. I'm trying to figure out if data or even the metadata that an app would collect(time records, to be exact) is able to retrieved from system files or not. The app is called Exaktime and it is a time recording app that I used for a previous job that I'm currently involved in a wage dispute with. It tracked our time and GPS location however on the phones side the app wouldn't display the recorded data after two weeks. It gets sent to the employer who unfortunately has the ability to modify at will those times. I was able to find a file by going to: Internal>Android>Data>com.exaktime.com but I have no idea what language/file format it's in to be able to read it. I've tried opening it with various script editors with no luck. I'm unsure if it's the stored data or if it's just the script for the app itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using an unrooted Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on Oreo 8.0 from T-Mobile. If I root it with Samfail would I be able to have more access to that data or not? Thanks.
