Problem! Messages in the status bar is a necessity when getting multiple incoming texts but having message info showing on a lock screen? What are you thinking guys by combining these 2 options? Your not. Its a lock screen! not a peeper screen. What if some things need privacy from people nearby? (like a suprise birthday party)

Dear future Android versions (I'm on android 4.3), please separate these features. Its annoying and people hate it. If enough android lovers leave comments we can make a change. Can I get a Amen!!

@ksilkster i hate this feature as well.  i just turned off the notifications completely to get rid of it.  I have the Galaxy Note 2 and it just recently updated to Jelly Bean 4.3.  I want the other option back.  I don't like it on the screen. It's annoying and stupid.

@ksilkster  Amen! I just got my note 2 and I could not understand why this feature was showing up all of a sudden then my husband told me it was a part of the update. I wish it would go back to the old way. I really dislike this feature.
