Hide the content of lock screen notifications

Having notifications come through on the lock screen can be handy because you don’t have to unlock your phone to see what the notification is about.

The problem with this is that someone may see the content of a notification (a text message for example) which you would like to keep private.

To change this setting to only display that the notification has arrived (rather than the actual content), then go to Settings – Lock screen and security.

Then select Notifications on lock screen

From here you can enable or disable which apps you can show notifications from or at the top, select to Show or Hide notifications.
