Report: President Trump carried unsecured Android phone
And that includes using his crappy, unsecured phone.
During the election, then-candidate Donald Trump repeatedly hammered his opponent Hillary Clinton for using a private, at times unsecured email server to conduct official state department business, which could have potentially revealed classified government information to hackers and foreign powers.
Newsweek reported Wednesday that top members of Trump’s cabinet, including Kellyanne Conway, Jared Kushner, Sean Spicer, and Steve Bannon all have active email accounts operating on a private email server — much like Clinton’s.
After he won the presidency, many of us longed for the day trump would receive the baby phone that wouldn’t let him do anything, hoping it might bring an end to his childish tantrums on Twitter.
Seems like that was all a bunch of bullshit though, because according to a new profile in the New York Times, President trump is nearly a week on the job and is still using his unsecured Android phone, which he is showing no indication of giving it up any time soon:Mr. Trump’s wife, Melania, went back to new york on Sunday night with their 10-year-old son, Barron, and so Mr. trump has the television — and his old, unsecured Android phone, to the protests of some of his aides — to keep him company.

The 3 big takeaways for TechRepublic readersUS President Donald trump is reportedly still using his personal Android phone, despite its lack of additional security features.
From what we can gather, it isn’t illegal for the president to use his personal phone while in office, but it is advised against.
As noted by former US President Barack Obama, the secure phone given to him while in office had very few features, and was almost similar to a toddler’s play phone.
The news comes by way of a New York Times report that said trump has kept the phone, despite “protests of some of his aides.”
