Disabling text message previews on your phone provides you another layer of protection against scammers. Allowing previews means that others can easily view sensitive information such as one-time passwords sent to you via text, without even having to unlock your phone.

Disabling these previews can be done in a few simple steps:

 

iPhone

  1. Unlock your phone and open the ‘Settings’ app
  2. Tap on ‘Notifications’ and then ‘Messages’
  3. Change the option for ‘Show Preview’ to Off

 

Android

  1. Go into your ‘Text Messages’ app and access ‘Settings’ from within the menu
  2. Tap ‘Notifications’ and then ‘Advanced’
  3. Select ‘On lock screen’ and change the option to ‘Hide sensitive content’
