How to keep your iPhone messages private

How to keep your iPhone messages private

By default, the iPhone will show sneak peak of any incoming message on the lockscreen, allowing prying eyes to get a glimpse of your life. You may don’t like that; I know I don’t. Being weird is my right and any message I send is made for the receiver, only. Otherwise, I would use Twitter or Facebook.

However, you can forget your phone on a desk and the iPhone will show message preview on the lock screen. Your colleague or friend could see the snippet of the message, and that’s not good thing at all times. Luckily there’s a way to turn off this capability and it’s really easy. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to “Settings”
  2. Go to “Notification Center”
  3. Scroll down to the “Include” section and select “Messages”
  4. Scroll down to “Show Preview” and turn it off

And you’re done. There’s really no good reason for anyone to get a sneak peek into your private life if you don’t want to. 😉
