Can I stop my text messages from being seen on the lock screen?

    When I lock my phone you can still read the last message on the lock screen. Is there away to prevent the latest message from being displayed while my phone is locked?

    It should only do this if the message is still marked as unread. Are you using the default SMS app?

    yes I am using the default and it is an unread message, but anybody who picks up my phone can read who my last text message came from without unlocking the phone.

    Get ChompSMS, it has an option to change that.
