Android, Tutorials

Are you tired of your lock screen being cluttered with notifications? Do you want to have more privacy and control over what information is displayed on your Android device’s lock screen? In this tutorial, we will show you how to hide notifications on the lock screen of your Android phone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your Android device and navigate to the Settings app. This can typically be found in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Select ‘Lock Screen’ or ‘Security’

Once in the Settings menu, scroll down until you find either Lock Screen or Security. The exact name may vary depending on your device and Android version. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Choose ‘Notifications’ or ‘Lock Screen Notifications’

In this section, locate and tap on either Notifications or Lock Screen Notifications. Again, the name may differ depending on your device.

Step 4: Customize Notification Settings

You should now see a list of apps that are allowed to show notifications on your lock screen. By default, all apps are enabled.

To hide notifications from a specific app, simply tap on its name and toggle off the option that says Show Notifications. Repeat this process for every app you want to hide notifications from.


If you want to allow certain apps to display their notifications on the lock screen while hiding others, you can leave those apps toggled on.

Bonus Tip: Hide Sensitive Content

If you want even more control over what is displayed on your lock screen, you can choose to hide sensitive content from notifications. This way, you will still receive notifications, but the actual content of the message or alert will remain hidden until you unlock your device.

To enable this feature, go back to the Lock Screen or Security settings menu and look for an option that says Show Sensitive Content. Toggle it off to hide the content.


Hiding notifications on the lock screen of your Android device can help improve privacy and reduce distractions. By following these simple steps and customizing your notification settings, you can take control of what information is visible on your lock screen. Remember that you can always revisit these settings and make changes as needed.
