How to stop incoming calls from showing who is calling on my locked screen S7

I now have a PIN and fingerprint security on my S7. When i get a text, the lock screen simply shows 'New Message' which is fine. HOWEVER, when I get a call, it shows who is calling, anyone can answer it AND it unlocks the phone. How do I keep my phone from showing who is calling until it is unlocked?

Settings... Notifications... Advanced notifications... Find the phone app... Tap on "lock screen" adjust as desired.
