NEW YORK (Monitoring Desk) – Even if the smartphone is locked, the text of the message in the WhatsApp notification is also visible, due to which the message can be read without opening it. In that case your phone is somewhere and if you don’t have it then anyone can read the incoming message on your WhatsApp and you won’t even know it. If you don’t want anyone to read your message this way, this news is for you.
According to the Daily Star, WhatsApp has given a feature through which you can choose whether the text of the message appears in the notification or not. IPhone users go to settings and click on notifications and then select the ‘Show Previews’ option. From here you can choose one of the Never or When Unlocked options.
Similarly, if you are using an Android phone, you can go to the ‘Lock Screen’ option in the settings and scroll down and select the Notifications option. From here you can also turn it off or change the setting to ‘Icons only’ by clicking on the button, which will stop you from seeing the text message in WhatsApp notification. ۔ Until your phone is ‘unlocked’, no one will be able to read your WhatsApp messages.
