So have you ever wanted to send your sweetie a suggestive message but don’t want any chance of others seeing it? When a text is received, it can be seen on the locked screen of the phone, unless you’ve already selected a different setting.
Well, there is a way around this but unfortunately it works for ALL messages.
On an iphone you:
- go into Settings
- Show Previews
- Then select either When Unlocked or Never
This keeps your messages private.
I’m looking into other methods as well, like sending through Love Nudge. I thought this worked but then it didn’t seem to be private (before changing the preview setting) but upon further inspection, it isn’t in the usual text message app but completely located in Love Nudge.
SO all that to say, selecting no previews will notify you that you have a text on the lock screen but not give you the message there. You have to unlock and view the message in the message app.
I’ll update you one the Love Nudge app’s messaging, if it works completely privately (i.e. not putting the message in the message app but only in the love nudge app).
Until next time, God bless,
PS. Be careful about linked devices, as you wouldn’t want a family tablet to have those private messages showing.
