The senators, who both service on the Homeland Security Committee, worry that an unsecured device could be vulnerable to hacking, posing a national security risk.
“Subsequent reports, however, suggest that President trump may still be using his personal smartphone, an ‘old, unsecured Android phone.’

Donald Trump might still be using his unsecured Android phone and putting the country at risk, according to two senators.
As President, Mr trump is expected to use a secure, encrypted and locked down phone so that his communications can remain secret.
Mr Carper, alongside with fellow Democrat Claire McCaskill, wrote a letter to the trump administration asking for more information about what phone Mr trump is using.
Mr Trump was given his new secure phone at the same time as his inauguration, apparently by the Secret Service.
As well as asking whether Mr Trump is using the secure phone, the two senators asked for further information about what his personal device was.

They also asked to review the Defense Department’s written policies for securing President Trump‘s personal device.
“Subsequent reports, however, suggest that President trump may still be using his personal smartphone, an ‘old, unsecured Android phone.’
“These vulnerabilities are among the reasons why national security agencies discourage the use of personal devices,” the letter reads.
Alongside the security risks, the Senators are also concerned that presidential records — including Trump’s tweets — may not be properly recorded if they are created on his personal device.
“Public reports originally indicated that President trump began using a ‘secure, encrypted device approved by the U.S. Secret Service’ prior to taking office,” the Senators wrote.
