The Democratic National Committee provides solutions to improve the security of smartphones. It suggests that the Democratic Party will get rid of all Android devices.

This is particularly true when the phone is from ZTE, which maintains relationships with the Chinese government.

DNC's first chief information security officer, Bob Road, has developed this plan. He points out that Apple frequently issues security patches for all iOS devices. This is something that the broken nature of the Android ecosystem can not be provided.

Google regularly introduces security patches for the operating system, but we need to ensure that each mobile phone manufacturer can use them for their own products. As the Lord said Forbes"It is very difficult to know if you purchased a specific phone from a vendor as to what the appetite for quality assurance is."

Apple 's commitment to security does not only fix occasional flaws occasionally. Even law enforcement agencies are hard to bypass the iOS login system and each application runs in the sandbox to make it more difficult for malware to access unauthorized information.

DTE Security versus ZTE and Huawei

Democratic National Committee does not recommend anyone working for the party to use the telephone made by ZTE.

That is not surprising. Last month, it was illegal for US government employees to use the telephone manufactured by ZTE. They are also forbidden to use Huawei's mobile phone, another company in China.

Currently DNC prefers Apple products, which is currently the most secure one. "At the moment there is a bias for the iPhone, but the evidence could change our mind … this is not a religious debate," Bob Road said, security officer at DNC .

Those working as part of the election need to use security keys as part of two-factor authentication.
