how to keep app specific notifications private

Windows 10 now allows you set notifications private at the app level. Private notifications will hide the notification from the action center unless the phone is unlocked. However, it will still allow you to see that there is a pending notification. This feature comes handy when you don’t want somebody to pick up your phone and read your text messages or Facebook messages from the action center.

  • Navigate to settings.
  • Tap on system.
  • Tap on Notification & actions.
  • Scroll down to see the app list.
  • Tap on the app which you need to customize.
  • Turn on “Keep notifications private on the lock screen”.
