Text messages are among the most private information on your phone, so you might want to add an extra layer of privacy to your Messages app. There are two ways to hide messages on the Galaxy S10 : You can disable text message preview notifications on your lock screen, and you can hide your Messages app entirely, making it impossible for someone who has access to your Galaxy S10 to browse your messages.

Some of that content may be important for your privacy, and you might not want people around you to see it.

My messages are showing up on lock screen as "content hidden". I've already changed the settings under notifications AND under the lock screen settings. I've reset the phone Bixby button and volume up button. Nothing is working. It's annoying at this point lol. Thanks for any and all help!
