This really goes without saying. If you have important bank account numbers or texts or anything in general that you do not want people to be peeking at.  It’s imperative to hide these from being shown on the lock screen.  Even when the phone is locked, this information will not be displayed.  Fortunately, the fine folks at Google have implemented a way for you to achieve this.
