To ensure you don’t miss out any important tasks, Siri offers suggestions on the lock screen. For instance, if you create notes every day in the evening, the personal assistant will alert you around the same time of the day. While it certainly is a very helpful feature, there is one downside to it. This feature may expose your privacy about the things you don’t want to share with others. If you are like me, you may want to turn off Siri Suggestions on the Lock screen in iOS 12.
I’m fine with Siri recommendations in search, apps, and keyboard as they enhance the user experience. But I would always want to keep them away from Lock Screen. After all, it’s never a wise idea to keep your personal information so accessible, isn’t it?
How to Disable Siri Suggestions on iOS 12 Lock Screen on iPhone or iPad
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, scroll down and tap on Siri & Search.
Step #3. Next, turn off the switch next to Suggestions on Lock Screen.
That’s all folks! Going forward, the personal assistant will no longer offer suggestions on the lock screen.
If you ever decide to go back to the previous option, just follow the same steps mentioned above and turn on the switch in the end.
That’s all there is to it!
Faced with huge competition, Siri has to cover a lot of ground to fend off the challenge coming from the likes of Alexa and Google Assistant. With the integration of Shortcuts, Apple’s personal assistant has got a much-needed shot in the arm.
