When you get on the Samsung Galaxy S6 a notification of a new SMS or WhatsApp message, then the contents of it is directly displayed on the lock screen. So you can read the content of the message without unlocking the lock screen. This is a useful feature if you want to quickly have an overview of who sent the message and what that person has written to you.
Drawback to this feature is that each person can read this message on the lock screen of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and thus know who sent the message, and what is written therein.
If you do not want that, then we'll show you now how to hide the content of a new message on the lock screenwhen it arrives on the Samsung Galaxy S6. This works in Android very easily as follows:
Open from the home screen the menu and then the Android settings. Navigate here to: sounds and notifications --> Notifications on lock screen.
Tap on the item and it will open a drop-down list in which you can now choose between "Hide Content" and "No notifications”.
After you have made your choice, no sender and no content of an SMS or WhatsApp message is displayed immediately on the lock screen of your Samsung Galaxy S6. You have successfully hidden on your Samsung Galaxy S6 the content of new notifications on the lock screen.
