Lumia 900 Text message privacy concern and password locking

[ Edited ]

When a new text message is received, even with a locked screen with password required, the text message and contents of message are displayed on the screen. I've contacted customer service and been told there is no way to fix this. Not sure if this happens with other updates as well. It's a privacy concern as phones may be left on tables at work, ect. I'd like to know if there might be a solution to this.

Also, if there is any way to password lock certain applications. I found this feature useful on other phones to protect privacy and things getting deleted when other people use my phone to play games or whatnot.

Re: Lumia 900 Text message privacy concern and password locking

I have the same question. I recently got a Lumia 900 and I was showing my phone to someone when some text messages popped up on the top bar. Its kind of stupid to do that..there's no configuration option to stop doing even does it if the phone screen is off and its locked.
