    Looking at some old threads it seems that when SMS messages come through they are there for all to see - which can be embarrassing if someone else has your iPhone or if a friend has sent something the kids shouldn't be reading!

    I found this but just wanted to know has anyone tried it, if so is it OK?

    If not, any other suggestions would be welcome. I think this is a huge flaw, especially for business users. Surely a simple F/W update could address this. It is infuriating if you're trying to get some work done on the train and a message pops up to ask what time you'll be home!

    If anyone has any further suggestions please let me know.

    Personally, if I knew something was on there that I didn't want kids seeing, I would clear the conversation long before the phone was in anyone elses hands. Rarely does it ever go into someone elses hands anyway, so I guess I don't have a very good opinion on this.

    Though, iClarified is a great source, and I would suggest just about anything that they post on there website. I would try it out.

    ^^ Agreed. There are a few convos I wouldn't have wanted people to see back in the day. Those were immediately deleted.

    Thanks. You can see my point though. Especially now they're doing business tariffs - I just think SMS should be private in the same way as the email is.

    It's just typical of Apple to see their own product more as a toy than a legitimate business product.

    Thanks again for advice on iClarified.
