I have just updated to the Samsung One UI 6.0 on my Samsung Galaxy S21 5G.

Since the update, my lock screen does not let me swipe notifications away.

Under the Lock Screen Notification settings, I currently have the "Hide Content" turned on.
If I change  this to "Show Content", it then lets me swipe the notification away on the lock screen.

This feature worked perfectly fine both ways before I installed this update.

Photo below shows a Facebook Messenger notification.
I use to be able to tap on it, and then swipe the notification away to dismiss it and just have a blank lock screen but it doesn't work anymore.

Any tips on how to get this back working again?
Or will I have to change to the "Show Content" option (which I don't want).
Why remove such a feature?

Model Name: SM-G991B/DS
Software Information - Build Number: UP1A.231005.003.G991BXXU9FWL3

Let's start from the beginning. The One UI 6 update has altered many settings. You have show content toggled on, but hide content too. You have to switch to Show content, tap the cog wheel, and choose the apps you want to receive notifications from on your lock screen when unlocked.

Take off hide content, switch to show content > tap cog wheel > choose apps you want to receive notifications from on your lock screen, when unlocked. Let me try to send screenshots. BRB.
