    Tap on an option.
    In this video, "Do not show notifications" is selected. Now, you will have the following options:
    • "Show content", which shows content when the phone is on the lock screen;
    • "Hide content", which hides content when the phone is on the lock screen;
    • "Do not show notifications", which is the most secure option that doesn't show anything on the lock screen. This is a very good choice, but you may want to select either of the other two options to be able to glance at the lock screen of the phone to see notifications.
