    I have a questions regarding the lock screen notification in the 5.0 update with Sense 6. When I first got the update lock notifications was turned off. So I went in and there is three settings, show all, hide sensitive and don't show. My problem is with with specific apps that show on the lock screen. My company uses Good Tech for corporate email. It has a persistent mode that always shows in the notification tray so in turn is shows on the lock screen. Is the some way to selectively have certain apps from not showing in the lock screen at all? I have looked but I cant find something to do this.

    The lock screen settings are sorta confusing for me....

    Go to Settings>Sound & Notification>App Notifications, select Good Tech, and make it Sensitive. Then in the Lockscreen settings, change it to Hide Sensitive.

    Will this hide the actual email notifications that come through?

    No, it's specifically for lockscreen notifications. "Sensitive" is for lockscreen, "Priority" is for your usual notification panel.

    Are there separate switches for Sensitive and Priority? Do you have both of them turned on?

    Unfortunately, I don't think there's a way to turn specific apps completely off on the lock screen. It's all or nothing. That's how Google has done it, so it's not really HTC's fault.

    But the thing is that on the Nexus 5, there is a definite function to set specific apps as "Sensitive," and another setting to hide all Sensitive information on the lockscreen. So there is a native way on vanilla Android (I know, it's not completely vanilla, but you know what I mean) to hide user-specified notifications on the lockscreen. Some manufacturers might potentially modify or disable this function, though.

    Ah, I gotcha. Yeah, I don't think that option is present on this phone. I wonder if it'll be different on Sense 7. It seems like HTC didn't fully bake everything from Lollipop into Sense 6 because they wanted to get it out in their 90-day time frame.

    Yeah Good Tech does have the toggles for Priority and Sensitive and Block. I'm fine with the way emails etc are displayed just don't won't the Persistent Mode showing up. Plus I get the Connected to Wireless networks touch for settings on the lock screen also.

    Now that I look, that option IS present, but all it does is hide the sensitive content, not the notification itself. Is that not the way it functions on the Nexus?

    I would personally turn off lock screen notifications if I could, but media playback controls are now integrated with lock screen notifications. Lame.

    Oh I see--that would make sense from how it's described. I've just never tried it myself.
