Notifications are designed to inform the user of important messages, but they can often reveal too much when being seen by prying eyes. A new Android app by Leomaster, Notification Guard, is designed to fix this problem while still informing the user that an important message awaits.
Notification Guard does two things: it hides notifications from both apps and texts, and blocks messages from public view. The app works specifically with your text messages as well as Facebook and WhatsApp messages. There is a normal masking mode designed to show only the app icon and number of notifications available for the specific app.
Notification Guard can mask an app notification as a text message, by making appear a given app’s notification as a text message; users can also mask their app notifications as Facebook messages and block messages by keyword(s), such as the name of a lover, from view. A message box works to store all notifications and messages in one place.
Notification Guard is designed to prevent passers-by from gathering info about messages with one glance. The app will prove useful for those who want to maintain some sort of privacy in a world where so much is publicized.
Notification Guard can be downloaded for free at the Google Play Store.
