Tips to make Lock Screen Notification Previews Private

iPhone 7 Plus

Do you have an iPhone? Does your iPhone runs on at lest iOS 11 or later? Then you can privatize the Lock Screen Notification Previews private on your device. Often we keep the Lock Screen Notification Previews “Always” so that everyone including us can see the notifications when your device is locked.

But sometimes you might not want to show your notifications to others. In this case you can make your  Lock Screen Notification Previews Private instead of turning off notification previews altogether. For this you need to  set your notification previews to be made visible only when your iPhone is unlocked. But if you use iPhone X and later, then this is not needed as Face ID will keep your data and information secure. Now let’s see how to do it.
