For national security, Trump trades in phone for Secret Service-approved device | ZDNet

“With just days before his inauguration, the president-elect was handed a new locked-down device, just like his predecessor.

Per a note in The New York Times, Trump has traded in his Android phone for “a secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service,” with a new phone number that very few know.It’s thought that Trump was pushed to turn over his Android phone — reportedly a Samsung Galaxy phone and believed to be his personal tweeting phone — as well as his phone number, which was widely known by the press.

Little is known about the phone. But it’s likely to be a similar or the same model as President Obama had during his final years in office.”
