    I would like to change the Whatsapp notification banner message from "WhatsApp Message from {contact name} to WhatsApp Message Received". My intention is to have better privacy while other people is viewing my phone and a message is received, the sender's name can be hidden.

    I tried to navigate using iFile and arrive at Localizable.strings in whatsapp.app , I modified the strings:
    "Message from %@" = "Message Received";

    and tried this too:
    "Message Received" = " Message from %@";

    *Original syntax:
    "Message from %@" = " Message from %@";

    I saved and respring, but it doesn't take effect. Am I doing it the correct way? Please guide me, thanks!
