|Many mobile devices display notifications on the lock screen so that users can obtain relevant information in a timely manner without having to frequently unlock the phone to determine if there are new notifications. However, in many cases, these notifications can contain sensitive information. When they are available on the lock screen, an adversary can see them merely by being in close physical proximity to the device. Configuring the mobile operating system to redact the contents of the notifications when the device is locked mitigates this risk. SFR ID: FMT_SMF_EXT.1.1 #19|

On the Samsung Android device, do the following:
