Unlike former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says she didn't use a private server for her emails.

In fact, she didn't use any server.

"I didn't do email," Napolitano said laughing, as she visited the California state Capitol Tuesday in her current role as University of California president. "At all."

"I did not text."

Asked if that was because of security concerns, she responded: "It certainly has made my life simpler now!"

Clinton, a likely 2016 presidential candidate, has come under fire from Republicans - and some Democrats - for using a private email server when she was Secretary of State.
