How To Block Notifications On Lock Screen On Google Pixel 7

One of the reasons why we set up a security lock is to have privacy; we don’t want other people to know what’s in our phone or who the people we’re talking to. If you care about your privacy, you might want to block the contents of the notifications on the Lock Screen of your Pixel 7.

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 3 minutes

The process of blocking the notifications is actually pretty easy to do. The setting for that can be found in one of the menus under the Settings app. Here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and then tap Settings app.

    Swiping up right from the search bar will actually pull up the App Drawer. You will then be able to find the app that you’re looking for. 

  2. Find and tap Notifications.

    This will bring you to where you can find more options on how you manage the notifications in your phone. 

  3. Scroll down a bit and then tap Notifications on the lock screen.

    A small window will pop up containing a few options you can choose from. 

  4. Tap Hide silent conversations and notifications to select it.

    This is the option you have to choose if you don’t want to show the contents of select notifications and conversations. 

  5. Tap Don’t show any notifications to select it.

    This is the option you need to choose if you don’t want any conversations or notifications to be shown on the Lock Screen. 

  6. Should you need to show notifications again, select Show conversations, default and silent.

    That will show every notification and conversation your phone can receive.

When it comes to choosing which contents are to be shown when your phone is unlocked is all up to you. There are other settings you can enable to further improve your privacy and protect your phone. 

We hope that this guide can help you.
