Finally, President Donald Trump ditches his Android smartphone as he can not use his personal smartphone during his duties as President of the United States of America.
President Donald Trump Ditches His Android Smartphone
20th January was a historic day for the United States of America and the World in a general way. Donald Trump, at 5 P.M. Lisbon, becomes the new president of the country. After this day, it is certain that the world will change. We will be here to follow.
Yesterday, the whole attention is turned to the ceremony that is already underway but there are also those who are worried about the security of Trump’s communications.
According to the “The New York Times,” Donald Trump, like what happened to Barack Obama, can not use his own personal smartphone during his duties as President of the United States of America. The same with that filled the social networks, especially Twitter, with very controversial tweets.
The reason is simple. His Samsung Galaxy is not a safe enough device for the job that he will take. His new smartphone, which he apparently already using, is much secure, encrypted, and approved by the Secret Services, with a number that few will ever have.
Moreover, The New York Times said this week, “he was forced to abandon his cherished ‘Trump’ 757 for an Air Force jet, and, according to people close to the transition, he has traded in his Android phone for a secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service with a new number that few people possess”.
However, all contacts made to Trump in the coming years will have to be greatly reduced and limited, and it is important that his devices are not exposed to attacks.
When, in 2009, Obama took office his personal phone remained a BlackBerry, since security was guaranteed. During this time, his smartphone did not have any access to any application store, photo capture, music playback and just limited to certain calls.
