In iOS 10, the screen is unlocked by pressing the Home button, and the familiar swipe to the right now opens widgets with calendar, weather and other information. Not very good in terms of privacy and just uncomfortable. Lifehacker tells how to turn it off.
Apple changed the unlocking mechanism to make life easier for us, and used the released gesture to call the widget for the same reasons. But for people who are concerned about privacy, this behavior is unacceptable, because the widget provides Spotlight search, calendar events, Siri suggestions and the voice assistant itself.
It is very easy to remove such personal information from the lock screen:
- Open System Preferences and go to the Touch ID & Passcode section.
- Find the block of toggle switches "Access with screen lock" in it.
- Disable the Today and View Notifications toggles.
After that, swiping to the right on the lock screen will do absolutely nothing. The same applies to the notification curtain: it will also stop working.
