According to the Politico website, US President Trump ignores security protocols from the White House to keep his iPhones safe. According to sources, one of his smartphones, which is used for Twitter and news websites, is unsafe.

The phone that Trump would use to consult news websites and Twitter would not be equipped with advanced security mechanisms to shield communications, reports Politicians on the basis of two unnamed senior government officials. Trump would have ignored requests from White House security officers to increase security.

He was advised to exchange the Twitter phone monthly, but that advice would have ignored Trump so far, because it was “too awkward” to him. This iPhone has not been checked by security staff for five months. According to another senior employee of the White House, the other, separate Trump phones that are used for calls are exchanged on a regular basis. That would not have happened with the Twitter phone, partly due to the security options provided by Twitter.

Trumps telephones for conversations would, in contrast to the copies that Obama used, simply have a camera and a microphone. The GPS tracker would have been removed from the Trump iPhone.

In 2017, two American senators have already made a phone call about the safety of President Trump’s smartphone. In a joint letter they asked for clarification about the reports that the president was still using an unsecured Android device .
