Why is there no option to "hide sensitive notifications" on my phone?

Why is there no option to "hide sensitive notifications" on my phone? (LG G3) I just updated to Lollipop, and it now it shows all my emails and texts on the lock screen which is not cool. When I tried to search for a fix, I found that you need to choose "hide sensitive notifications" under the "Sound and Notification" settings, but that option is nowhere to be found. Help!

Ladies and Gentlemen. If you already tried this, please disregard this post.

Under sound and notification tap Apps. You'll see your apps. Then tap the app in question. Then you'll get choices on actions you can take.

So now all my notifications seem to think they are sensitive. How do I make some sensitive and others not?

My options are all or none, BUT I know i can select which apps to get notifications from on my lock screen.  It might prove to be an all or nothing situation.

I have figured it out. It's really dumb. So you need to set the locking mechanism (pattern, code, whatever). Then go to Settings>Sound and Notification>Lock Screen> Show All Notifications. Then when you go to Settings>Sound and Notification>Apps and pick something like "messages", the "sensitive" option appears.

So essentially if you choose the "Hide Sensitive Only" it seems to think that all are sensitive and you can't pick and choose. But if you "Show All", it will let you decide what is sensitive. Very complicated.

I liked almost everything about LP other than app permission restrictions, some of the colors, and the Interruption/Priority feature.  That one was a bit hard to figure.
