Why President Trump using an unsecured Android would be a very bad idea
Why does it matter that Trump might be using an unsecured smartphone?
According to a report by The New York Times, trump is still using an unsecured Android smartphone, rather than the kind of secure device President Barack Obama begrudgingly used after giving up his locked-down BlackBerry last year.
But it seems like trump is skimping on security where it might matter most: his smartphone.
