    No. You can use your passcode feature and keep your phone locked. It's a 4 digit code. That's all you can do. You can also keep your messages deleted. That's what I do. Why keep old messages?

    Exactly! That's what setting a lock screen passcode is for - to prevent unauthorized use of your device. If you feel that unlocking the lock screen is an inconvenience, would you not have to also unlock the SMS app?

    I always clean up my messages, out of habit. I have an older sister who's a snoop and I caught her reading my messages WAY back, years ago, from my Motorola Razr.

    I keep my lock time to three minutes. Very easy now, with Touch ID.
