British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
Senior UK officials have already advised Johnson to finally change his phone number.
The mobile phone number of Boris Johnson, the head of government of the United Kingdom, has been available on the Internet to everyone for the past 15 years. About this on Friday, April 30, writes BBC.
Johnson’s cell phone number was reportedly listed at the bottom of a press release issued in 2006 while he was heading the Shadow Ministry of Higher Education.
“This document with the same phone number is available on the Internet to this day,” the agency said.
High-ranking British officials have already advised the head of government to change the number, as there are fears that “anyone can contact him directly.”
In turn, the Prime Minister’s office declined to comment on a report published on the Popbitch website, indicating that Johnson’s phone number is available on the Internet to anyone looking for it.
After the information was disseminated, the number was turned off, but representatives of the Prime Minister have not yet said whether it will be used in the future.
Former UK national security adviser Peter Ricketts suggested that hostile states with advanced cyber technologies or criminal groups may already have access to Johnson’s number.
It was previously reported that British broadcaster Sky will direct a five-part drama This Sceptred Isle, which will reflect the British government’s response to the 2020 coronavirus crisis.
