Despite the spectacular emergence of instant messaging applications, which are counted by the dozens and which currently has almost all of us as users, SMS or text messages and iMessage are still very present . It is true that its use has been greatly reduced compared to a few years ago, but for the moment they are reluctant to disappear.

If you are one of those who still send your mother a text message or use iMessage to talk with other people who own an Apple device, today we will show you how to hide messages on your iPhone and iPad through this interesting tutorial , which will also allow you to do it in a simple way, with the aim of keeping your privacy safe.

In which cases could I need to hide my messages? 

Surely if you think you can think of a situation in which you need to hide the messages on your iPhone or iPad , but if you're not fine, do not worry that below we show some of these situations in which you will need to your messages are not displayed, in any way, on the screen of your device;

  •     If you are planning something important with a friend or relative, for someone in your family who has the bad habit of being very aware of your iPhone and of course you can not find out what you are planning
  •     In the event that you go for family reunion or friends and you are going to leave your device on the table in view of everyone
  •     Just for privacy and so that no one can read the messages they send you or even who sent them, who cares if your mother, your girlfriend or someone else sends you a text message? 

There are only three cases in which you might need to hide your messages, but there are many more situations, of all kinds that are likely to be presented to you on a day-to-day basis.

How to hide messages on the lock screen

Every time we receive a message on our iPhone or iPad, we can see by default part of this on the blocking screen, leaving in view, in some cases, things of our privacy. To avoid this we must make several adjustments to our device , which of course we will explain below;

  •     Access the Settings ** of your device and then search the options of ** Notifications , to finally access Messages.
  •     If you scroll to the bottom you can find the option "Show previews" that we must deactivate so that our messages can not be seen in the blocking screen

If the above method does not seem enough, since you can uncover the name of the person who writes to you, you can always go a step further by disabling message notification on the blocking screen.

  •     Return to ** Notifications ** in the Messages app
  •     Disable the option "View on the blocked screen"
  •     You also have the option to deactivate the notifications directly, although with this you will not be able to find out about the reception of messages

Finally we still have another option that will allow us to hide messages within the application itself Messages from our iPhone or iPad. The only negative aspect is that to carry it out we will need to have a device with jailbreak since we will need to make an adjustment in our device, baptized as HiddenConvos, and that we can find in Cydia.

Hide the messages on the screen of our iPhone or iPad may seem unimportant to most, but that is most interesting for many other people who do not want to reveal part of their privacy. In addition, any person may need at any given time to preserve their privacy , at a meeting of friends, at work or at any other time.
