How to Stop Others Snooping on your locked iPhone

There’s a little setting change to an iPhone that will make it next to impossible for prying eyes to see what messages are on your phone when its locked.

As a matter of convenience, iPhone and iPad software let’s you get quick access to notifications and messages along with some controls even when your device is locked.

That opens it up to snooping friends, family and foe reading private information and seeing top texts when you are not around and they have access to your locked device.

3 Steps to disable locked screen snooping

  1. On iPhone or iPad go to Settings
  2. Scroll down to find and tap Face ID & Passcode. Enter passcode when requested.

3.  Scroll to section ALLOW ACCESS WHEN LOCKED and turn off Notification Center and then turn off Control Center

Now your iPhone or iPad no longer allows strangers to access your control center or private messages by swiping down on a locked device.
