How to Turn-Off Message Preview on iOS 7 Lock Screen for iPhone

The text-message preview on the lock screen of your iPhone is a value-added feature of iOS. This feature lets you see who sent what without having to unlock the screen.

While it’s a useful feature for some, for others it was a visible breach of privacy because not many like personal messages intended for them to spring up (and show up) right on the lock screen.

Turn off text message preview on lockscreen in iPhone

The text-message preview feature is one of the few features that actually turned out be used by very few people. Although introduced to be a very useful feature, the lock-screen preview showed a lot of the message which could be a problem for privacy.

We really expected a minor change in the way messages showed up on the lock screen. If only the name of the person who messages appeared (and not a part of the message along with), I guess many people would take that up.
