How to Turn Off Siri Suggestions on LockScreen in iOS 12 on iPhone or iPad

Some Siri suggestions could be personal and I’m sure not many of you would want to make them appear on the Lock screen. Thankfully, there is a way to completely turn off Siri suggestions on the Lock screen in iOS 12 on iPhone and iPad.

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?
