Prevent one to open Events when phone is locked (resolved) [answered]

I've just noticed that when the phone is locked, it is still possible to show the Events screen by swiping up from the bottom border of the phone. If you get a SMS, it is then possible to read it. I don't think that's a good thing for privacy ;)

The best solution might be to simply disable the gesture responsible for showing the Events screen when the phone is locked ?

...or allow the gesture but hide the actual messages, pretty much like the N9 does.

Go to Settings -> System settings -> Device lock and disable the option "Allow feeds while locked", then it's is not possible any more, to read the events notifications w/o entering the lock code.

Aah thanks, I missed it :)

"Allow feeds" does not tell the users that also e.g. unread SMS messages remain visible, so the wording should be improved here.

I must second ww here. "Allow feeds" is not much describing and it completely lacks description, which could be as simple as "Forbid access to the events screen while the phone is locked." This description should be pretty easy task to fix, hope to see it there soon.
