To help WhatsApp users to access to WhatsApp, iPhone WhatsApp will pop up a notification when there's a new message received. However, it's not very practical for those who care more about privacy because someone else can also glance at your WhatsApp message when you just put your phone on the table. To solve this, you can follow the simple steps below to hide WhatsApp message preview on iPhone.

Now, it will not pop up the message on the notification bar anymore when there's a new message received. Of course, it's possible that after you turn off "Show Preview", the new WhatsApp messages are easily neglected when silent mode is on. So, when you want to turn message preview on, you just need to go back and turn on the "Show Preview" toggle on.
