Is there any update on this? Or is the situation still the same?
Marc Bornträger


Yes there is actually. At least on iOS. For Android and Windows Phone I haven’t seen any updates.

With iOS 10 you have the ability to encrypt the payload before you send it from the server and then there is a hook to decrypt it on the phone before it is being displayed in the lock screen/notification center/etc

More details can be found in this presentation from WWDC 2016.

I have a plan to create a new article around this with some example. But still on the todo-list :)
