  1. I turned off this setting on my Samsung A71 but still recieve "Content hidden" in notification for each email I get in Samsung email app. I unisntalled MS Outlook, turned off edge lightning and checked email app settings but nothing helped. It worked fine with my previous phone Huawei P9.

  2. I've tried everything possible and can't unhide hidden notifications on my Samsung Galaxy 10e. I'm beyond frustrated and don't know what to do!

  3. Likewise, I have had Samsung for years and always just switched this option off. S21 personal phone, this is switched off and works fine. A71 switched off and having issues.
