With just a few simple steps, you can quickly hide the content of Zalo messages, limiting the prying eyes of others.
Most of the current OTT apps like Messenger, Zalo… allow users to set a security lock code, avoiding other people’s curiosity when they open the app and look at the content inside.

How to set the Zalo security switch
First, update Zalo on your phone to the latest version via the App Store or Google Play. After that, users just need to open the application, switch to Personal – Account and Security – Set Zalo Key and activate the option to set the lock code.

Next, set up a 4-digit passcode to protect the app. From now on, users have to enter additional keycodes or use fingerprints to access Zalo.
Note, if you forget the lock code, you have to uninstall and reinstall the app, which means all message and call data will be erased (if not backed up).

Turn off the feature to appear before the content of Zalo messages
To limit the prying eyes of others, you should turn off the feature that appears before the content of Zalo messages by opening the application, switching to the Personal section and clicking on the gear wheel icon in the right corner.

Then, users just need to find the notification section and turn off the message preview option. From now on, the content of Zalo’s messages will no longer be displayed in the notification center, and instead, users will only see the “You have a new message” content.
People should exercise caution and vigilance when receiving and sharing information on social networks.
