Turn off lock screen notifications, delete old messages automatically...are ways to secure messages on your iPhone.
Here are 5 tips to make iPhone messaging as secure as possible

Turn off message notifications on the lock screen: A part of the message is usually displayed with a lock screen notification. To block notifications, select Settings> Notifications> Messages and turn off Show on Lock Screen in the Alert section. If the user wants to receive a message notification without displaying content on the lock screen, turn on Show on Lock Screen, select When Unlocked, or Never. in the Show Preview.

Text messaging with iPhone: Users will often use either iPad or Macbook to text message with their account. For better security, only use iPhone for messaging as this device is usually kept next to it. To block messages, select Settings> Messages and turn off unnecessary devices in Text Message Forwarding.

Who's the lucky person receiving text messages from Dave Grohl in the first picture? :D
Jokes aside, great post, very well explained and extremely useful. I like how you went into every single detail and basically made the phone 100% secure with all these tips.
Also the tips can be considered very universal and can apply to many other types of phones, not just iPhone, which is fantastic.

That lock screen message notification really bothers me, considering how easily people can read your messages that way.
So overall, great job you did over here, buddy, keep going :)
