When you are determined that you are not going to miss out any essential tasks, Siri offers you loads of suggestions on your iPhone’s lock screen. For instance, when you are creating notes every day in the evening, the personal assistant is going to alert you about the same time of the day.
While this feature in Siri is undoubtedly very helpful, there is one disadvantage of it too. This feature can sometimes expose your privacy about the sensitive contents you don’t even want to share with others who look at your phone. If you are like me who care about his privacy, then you would probably want to stop Siri from showing the Suggestions on the Lock screen in your iOS 12.
I feel okay seeing the recommendations from Siri in apps, search, and keyboard as they are something that enhances the user experience. But I would never want them to ever appear on the Lock Screen. In spite of everything, it’s never been an intelligent idea to keep your personal information open and easy-to-get.
- Open the “Settings” app.
- Click on the “Siri & Search” option.
- Here you will find a switch next to Suggestions on Lock Screen, turn it off.
Doing so will stop your personal assistant to offer suggestions on the lock screen. And if you ever think of going back to the previous option, you will just need to follow the same process mentioned above and turn on the switch in the end.
