You have control over some of the information that gets displayed on your lock screen. You can choose to hide certain calendars, hide certain apps, hide SMS content. You can also dismiss any information on the lock screen simply by swiping it away. Don’t worry about accidentally dismissing, you can undo it.

4.Why do the number of unread SMS not match the new incoming SMS number on the lock screen?
This occurs when you earlier dismissed new SMS notifications and still have not yet read the SMS. We count the number of new messages since your last dismiss. The pill count on the SMS app icon indicates the total number of unread SMS.
