    I last asked about this in 2014...On an apple phone, when I get a text alert, it shows up on the screen when the phone is locked. As an option, It will show who the text is from but hide the content of the text. Does android allow this now? Last time I had an android phone my options were: 1) show who the text is from AND part of the text (no privacy). 2) Show the text alert but do not show who the text is from or any part of the text (thus forcing me to stop what I'm doing and unlock the phone to check. 3) Or hide all text alerts. Being that I am busy at work I would like to see WHO the text is from but HIDE the context of the text. This way it allows me to either ignore the text (from say sport group buddies) or read it (from wife, kids, etc) all at the same time keeping the message private. Thanks!
