Notifications as a result of message previews can turn into a constant source of distraction for those who are not using their device or trying to enjoy other apps at a certain point. Don’t you agree with me on that? All latest Android devices are usually configured from the factory with a default setting that displays a preview of new incoming messages on the lock screen and you already know that your LG V30 comes as no exception to this rule.
People see this feature in different ways: there are plenty of LG V30 users who consider it as being a very useful function when they want to be able to take a quick look at a part of the message before opening it to read in full. Therefore, whenever you put your handset down somewhere, or leave it in a purse, all it takes is a button press to see who might be looking for you, who might be messaging you on Facebook or WhatsApp and so on.
However, chances are to find out that the preview has enough characters for those around you to get the idea of what your conversation is about, not to mention all those times when you might simply be in public with the LG V30 smartphone faced up on a table where others have direct access to the messages that are incoming to the device.
Should you do something about this scenario? The truth is that only you can answer that question; and you have to think carefully whether or not there is a high possibility that someone next to you take a peek into your own LG device.
To avoid such unpleasant situations, it is possible to disable the preview feature for incoming messages. After all, it is all about protecting your privacy and trying to reduce some of those distractions that are caused by simply using an Android device such as this one.
