Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Does anyone know how to stop having your new txt messages show up on your home page???? Please help!!!!! This problem is very annoying, and leaves no privacy whatsoever.
It's a workaround, but it works if you're going to leave your phone unattended...
First, go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock Turn the passcode on and create a password to protect your phone--set this to the time you prefer for your phone to go into locked mode.
Next, under the same Passcode Lock screen, set the "Show SMS Preview" to off.
Lastly, when you're going to be away from your phone, set the phone to Airplane Mode under general settings. By setting to airplane mode, you won't get any new information pushed to you.
If you're not in airplane mode, it will still show on your home screen that you received a text message from a specific number but it won't preview the message. In order to retrieve the message you will have to go into the sms function, which will require that you enter your passcode.
It's not perfect and it requires you to think about it, but it will work for you.
