New Tweak Hides Notification Banner Content On A Per-App Basis

When privacy is important for you, sometimes you want to hide notification banner content on a per-app basis in iOS 10, as notifications that pop up from some apps can easily carry sensitive information that can be readable by anyone who might be looking at your device at that moment. Some apps like Facebook Messenger, Messages and Mail, come with internal settings for hiding message content, but not all messaging apps have these options. That's why a new Cydia release known as NotifyCensored by Pax Cex fixes this problem by allowing you to hide notification banner content on a per-app basis in iOS 10.

NotifyCensored tweak really takes care of your privacy as it not only can conceal the messages you receive, but also who’s sending them. It hides information from notification banners throughout iOS platform, including the notifications message on banner Lockscreen and Notification Center.

The stock options of some iPhone app's allow you to hide the content of the message, but not the name of the sender. This is just one way that the tweak actually one step ahead of the stock settings in some apps. Additionally, NotifyCensored tweak supports a bulk of other third-party messaging apps, which can be enabled/disabled from the dedicated preferences pane in the Settings app:

Just toggle the app you want and you’re ready to go, as all your changes take effect right away without respring.

NotifyCensored is available as a free download package from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 9 and 10 devices. So if you don’t want to miss out on any notification and at the same time don’t want anyone to peer at your private info, then NotifyCensored is the best choice for you. As you can see jailbreaking not only offers a wide variety of new functionality that you can add to your iOS device but it take care about you personal info as well.
