Good class ⭐⭐⭐⭐   

I recently took a OSINT class offered by Michael Bazzell. That class had me wanting more; a week was not enough. The MOBILE APP INVESTIGATIONS class was a great investment because it went into great depth with the different social media platforms. I enjoyed the "at your own pace" learning and appreciate the examples the instructor gave on how to apply what you've learned. I am glad I took this class.
