    With Kit Kat and previous, waking the phone would show any notification icons in the status bar without having to unlock the phone.

    Now wit Lollipop, it won't show the icons in the status bar. I have to unlock the phone to see if there are any notifications available.

    Since HTC refuses to give notifications access to the LED while charging, this is a major annoyance. I've tried adjusting the lock screen notification settings, but the only option is for it to openly display messages on the lock screen which I don't understand why anyone would want that.

    I know, same here. I hate to unlock the screen everytime I want to see if there's anything in my notification bar. How can we fix it? (I really can't find another thread where it had been discussed)

    Under Settings > Sounds and Notifications > When Device Is Locked, do you have show all content checked?

    Granted, this is on my Nexus 7, which will be in use until possibly Tuesday, maybe Wednesday, when I'm getting the S tab 8.4, My notification bars still show up on the lock screen, and didn't have to download an app for it to do so. Maybe it will be different with the Galaxy S tab, I don't know.

    Did op ever find a solution to this because it's driving me nuts and I'm sorry that it might have been discussed in previous threads but that's not helpful to someone that doesn't lurk daily. I've searched status bar lock screen, notification status bar, lock screen notifications, etc, etc and I've not come up with any answer to this specific question of icons displayed on the lock screen. Yes I understand you can display tacky large white blocks on the screen, I want small icons in the top corner. Please drop a link or tell me a setting for the htc m8. Thank you.

    Some info that might help you... Go to Settings/Sounds & Notifications/While Locked, choose Show All Content; next go to Application Notifications, all listed Applications default to off, so you only need to address the ones you want back on, Music Player, Messages, Email, Gmail, etc.; under the ones you do not want the "preview" you show on the lock screen, select "Sensitive." This will put the small icon you used to see in the status bar during a lock screen in previous versions of Android Op Systems, but instead of up top, it drops it in a small bar below any notification not set to sensitive. The notifications not set to sensitive, but on priority, give you the preview on the lock screen, like maybe the weather. By showing all content on the lock screen, you get your Music Player controls back. Now the bar that shows the little icons on the lock screen that used to appear in the status bar can be swiped down to get a preview, and swiped back up to be consolidated as the little icons. I know that is still technically unsecured, but it sure beats not having the notifications there at all...

    Changing it to hide sensitive data will hide the content on the lock screen but not remove it from the lock screen. the op wants to see them only notification bar not the lock screen. And so do I.

    Hi! I also had text messages show up on my lock screen but then the Lollipop update changed that. I went nuts trying to figure this out and tried everything. Then I tried this:

    Go to Settings/My Device/Notifications/Other Sounds/Samsung Applications/Messaging/Preview Message

    I had this box checked, but I unchecked it then checked it again. Voila! Problem solved.

    Hope this helps!

    I liked that before you could see the icons, but not the actual email notfications. Sometimes I do not want to see what emails I have (and get entangeled with work issues) but do want to see the other notifications. After the update you had a choice of either the emails on the screen listed individually, or checking "Dont show notifications when locked" you get nothing.
    Why is this an improvement?

    I just signed up to write a comment here.
    It is SUCH an annoying feature! Even when you only choose that sensitive content should be hidden, an ugly notification bar comes up who tells that the content has being hidden. I mean... WHAT THE ****?

    Please come up with a solution, it can't be that you have other possibilities and the old one just has gone. Even the LED notification lights doesn't seem to work the same, even if I haven't changed anything with the settings...

    I am frustrated now

    Again, android cracks, please bring any solutions!

    Cheers, Lewhone

    Settings -> sounds and notifications -> notification heading, While Locked -> show all content.

    I just got this update on my note and have the same complaints as all of you! I liked just pressing the button on the side of my phone to light the screen up and see the little notifications on the top left but now you have to unlock the screen for this. It's now replaced with my carrier 'Yes Optus' words when screen is locked. Why would they get rid of this feature? I've tried everything and nothing works. As people have said above I don't want to see large notifications all over the lock screen I want the little icons to show up in lock mode in the upper left corner!

    There appears to be no 'sensitivity' option on the Htc One m9. The only options to show notifications on the lock screen are all or none. In the notification settings apps list, there is no 'sensitive' switch.

    Is this correct or have I missed something?

    PLUS 1 ON THIS!

    I HATE the Lollipop notifications! I want A notification, just not some huge message in the middle of my lock screen that anyone on the world can see. And why in the world would you put "hidden content" on that badge? If I've freaking hidden sensitive content, don't the idiots on the Android development team think that it's been hidden for a REASON and that I probably don't want someone who's looking at my phone to know it's been hidden? I will know it's been hidden and can change that if I want.

    PLEASE just bring back the ability to only have notifications on the notifications bar! Which then begs the question... if you're going to put huge notifications all over our screens, why do you need the damned notifications bar at all? This whole move was just plain stupid.

    Oh, and thanks for removing the ability to have dark themes that save battery life. Now the glow and glare of my screen will even further **** off those around me in dark situations. Terrible Terrible update.

    Might be time for me to go iPhone.

    This is such a big hit to my productivity. I need to see my notification icons on my lock screen at a glance constantly throughout my day. Having to unlock to even know if I have one is ridiculous. Have the carrier name there certainly add NO value whatsoever. And the new lock screen notification method is just not a usable solution for me either -- it may work for some, but clearly for so many like me it's a disaster. I rely so heavily on my phone to communicate, stay informed, and manage my day -- this is such a sabotage to my productivity in an otherwise pretty great software update.

    I hope for a remedy soon. As much as I'm loving the rest of the Lollipop update, I may revert back to re-gain this functionality. It'd be great if they'll just introduce a toggle option to turn lock screen notification tray icons on or off, essentially to choose between the current and previous behaviors -- this could co-exist with the new notifications for those who value those while giving us back the proven critical value of simple notification icons on the lock screen. It's crazy that one change like this can cause such a problem, but it affects me dozens of times throughout every day. It's a big deal.
