How CensorSender works
When you lock your device, the stock iOS operating system allows anyone to take a sneak peek at your notifications.
Although the lock screen doesn’t let notification intruders open an app without the passcode, the notification body easily gives away the sender name. That is where this new tweak comes in.
CensorSender censors the sender in push notifications. It is developed by tweak developer Dunkston.
It is compatible with iMessage, WhatsApp, ReProvision and all other non-native applications.
Here’s how it looks like in action.
It comes with an easy-to-use preferences section. Here’s how you can set this tweak up.
- Enabled (on) – Enables the functionality of the tweak.
- Censored Text – Defines the “censored text” that replaces the sender name in notifications. The default text is “Protected by CensorSender” but you can change it to anything you like.
