In iOS, there is the possibility of hiding messages or information from our notifications that reach the iPhone or iPad when the device is blocked.
This function can be very useful when you are careful with privacy and we want to maintain it.
How to do it?
This option is compatible for iPhone X how iPhone with Touch ID, yes, if we have the Home button activated with the accessibility option will not work.
In order to activate this feature, we need to have iOS 11 installed on our device. There are two ways to apply this function, for all applications in general or individually.

For notifications in general
- We go into configuration
- Let’s notifications
- We went into show previews
- We choose if it is unlocked.
Ready, it’s that easy. Nobody will see what your notifications say if you have your iOS device blocked. As you may have noticed, it offers two options apart from the one we chose to “show previews”, “never” and “always”. Where you can choose the one that suits you best.
For notifications of a specific application
- We go into adjustments
- then to notifications
- we search and select the desired application.
- We go down to show previews
- Check if you are unlocking
Notifications always come in always show by default but with this option it certainly gives much more control over our privacy. For many iOS notifications can be overwhelming both to manage and the little privacy that comes by default.
My advice is that when you have a free time you try this notification settings and adjust it to your needs at the same time you can go through the settings of all the applications to personalize them even more.
Recently, an iOS bug was discovered, this allows Siri to read notification content. This will surely be resolved in a future update.
