Turn off SMS preview (iPhone)

Issue: 

Messages previewWhen you receive an incoming SMS message on your iPhone, a preview of the message is displayed on your screen. For security reasons, you may not want even a small portion of the message displayed. To disable SMS Preview, go to the Settings app and select Messages, and turn the "Show Preview" switch off. You'll still receive a notice, but it will be a generic "New Text Message."
