    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Sound & Notification>When Device Is Locked, and change it to Hide Sensitive Notification Content. Then go to Settings>Sound & Notification>App Notifications​, select Messaging, and make it Sensitive.

    That's strange. I'm running 5.0.2 on my Moto G and they are where B. Diddy said. You can even hide all notifications on the lockscreen.

    That's strange. When you go to Settings>Sound & Notification>When Device Is Locked, is there also no Hide Sensitive Notification Content option there? That's what I gather from your post, but just want to make sure.

    Try wiping the cache partition. The steps for the X should work for the G: https://motorola-global-portal.custh...p/30,6720,9197

    I doubt this is the answer, but maybe there's some app that is acting as a Device Administrator that is somehow blocking that function. Go to Settings>Security>Device Administrators, and see if there's anything else there besides Android Device Manager.

    I hope you realise I'm not the original poster, and that I was not trying to take over the thread and get help, but I thought it time to say something, as I've seen other places saying about settings I do not have.

    in answer to your question: just Android Device Manager.

    I use k-9 for email and chomp for SMS, with the right settings, privacy (or just plain irritation of message previews) are not an issue.

    The options to hide sensitive notification content globally or by app only appears if you have a secure lock screen method set - i.e. not Slide or None.

    D'oh! Well I feel silly now. I should've realized that from your post count!
