No visual pop up notification on lock screen

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I just switched from ios and on my new s8 I can't seem to configure pop up notifications while my screen is locked. I can hear the audible notification but nothing shows so I have to unlock phone and open the app to see a message or email etc

Hey guys! You can easily change lock screen notifications settings on Samsung galaxy S8 devices. In galaxy S8 and galaxy S8 plus device, you can see two options for set lock screen notifications, one is hide content and another is notifications icons only. These settings can be found withing Settings > Lock Screen & Security > Notifications. You can also customize what apps you actually receive notifications from and which ones will show content or just the icon when your screen is locked:

Hide content on Samsung galaxy S8

Hope this helps! Smiley Happy

I have exactly same problem! Switched from iOS (though I had prior Android expereince). Just want to see notifications on a lock screen and can't seem to find where to enable it. I remeber on my old Motorola phones it was normal as on iOS.

Hello @userhHJzhKhj48, did this begin after you downloaded an app? Is the notification on the lock screen all day or does it go away and come back?
