Have you looked in the Messaging app's settings to see there's an option there?

Hi Asumant,

 

Thank you for posting. You can hide the notification content only in the Lock screen it is not possible when the phone is unlocked. To do enable that option go to Apps > Settings >  Apps and Notifications > Notifications > Lock Screen > Hide sensitive content. Let us know if this helps.

 

Best regards,
Zeke

This must be why I can't take them off my phone G7 Power??? I HATE it! Please change this feature so those of us that don't want it in the status bar don't have to have it there! Some people may like it, but it makes me hate this phone! This is my first Motorola phone and I'm considering returning it to go back to Samsung!

Have you tried another SMS app.I use,"Pulse" on one of my phones and I think I only get a brief notification in the Nbar,

Also with the paid  version I think you can send SMS from any device :)

Yes I just tried it... It bumps me back to system notification settings. They must think the world needs a huge notification with a reply button and everything! It doesn't make using the phone any easier, IMO it's a big inconvenience!!! I don't like it at all....

OK.I may have found a solution for you.

 

Uninstall pulse and install the other SMS app I use on may main phone called,"QKSMS" which is a sister app to a great Call Blocker app I use called,"Should I Answer" as I hate unsolicited calls,

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.moez.QKSMS&hl=en_GB

 

Then QKSMS>3 Bars>Settings>Notifications>Notification Previews and set to none.You should now just get a small,"Q"in the notification  bar.

 

 

 

There are other options to customize in QKSMS to suit your needs and it can backup your text unlike the Stock Android messaging apps and block Spam text if you also use Should-I-Answer I recall :)
