    Default locked messages

    I have been using handsend for SMS and really like the feature where you can set certain people to be in a "privacy box". That way someone doesn't see there name if they are looking at your screen when you pull up messaging. My question is: does the standard messaging app on my Samsung Note 3 have a similar feature. When I pull up the standard messaging app, hit menu button, I see an option for "Locked messages" but I can't figure out how to do anything with it. If I click on "locked messages" it says there are no messages. I have searched hi and low for this, please help.

    Default Re: locked messages

    Hmmm...never really needed to use this feature, but what I've found is that you cannot lock a specific thread, but you can long press on a conversation in said thread, and an option to lock does appear.
    Who am I? Well sir, that's classified!

    Locking messages is basically saving that message in that thread so it doesn't get deleted. There is no real privacy setting for the stock messenger.
