Something that we highlight for good is the possibility of seeing notifications on the lock screen. In this way we know, from a first glance, if we really want to unlock our device or not. This evidently occurs with WhatsApp Also, it gives us the possibility to see the messages received on the lock screen and read what they have sent us.
But this option in WhatsApp it can be inconvenient. And we say this if we take into account that anyone can read what they send us. When we leave the iPhone somewhere with friends, family … and we receive a message, the screen turns on letting us see that message they have sent us.
So we bring you a solution, to prevent them from reading the messages of WhatsApp without our consent …
How to prevent them from seeing your WhatsApp messages on the lock screen:
The first thing we have to do is enter the settings of iPhone. Even if it is WhatsApp, we will have to configure this option from the device settings.
Once we are inside the settings, we look at the Applications, the app what are we talking about (almost all the way down). When we find it, click on it and we will access its configuration in our iPhone.
We choose the Whatsapp app
Here we can deal with any aspect of the configuration, which is related to the device (Notifications, Location, Data …). As what interests us is that the messages appear on the lock screen, click on “Notifications”.
WhatsApp notification settings
Here we have all the notification options. We can configure from seeing the messages in the notification center, to seeing or not the WhatsApp on the lock screen. It is this last option that interests us, which is marked by default.
As what we want is to prevent these messages from being seen, we must uncheck this option to deactivate it.
DISABLE the “Locked screen” option
Now when we get a message from WhatsApp, It will sound as usual but will no longer appear on the lock screen.
