    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? How are you unlocking your screen -- with a PIN/password/pattern, or are you just swiping?

    Was the messaging app still open when the phone locked before? Or does it unlock to the messaging app regardless of what was on the screen before it locked?

    It does not seem to matter whether or not the app is closed completely or if it's open and I've been using a different apps that app always opens up when the screen unlocks

    Is this the stock messaging app or a 3rd party one? What happens if you use a 3rd party one like Textra?

    Does this happen if you set the stock Messaging app as default again?

    Even switching back to next sms, the issue seems to have been alleviated

    And it is back, switching sms apps to the default ones does not seem to matter to it any more

    Does it happen in Safe Mode? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28008. If not, then something you installed is causing it. it can be challenging to pinpoint the culprit, though -- you may have to uninstall apps one by one.
