Is there a way to lock my text messages?

Is there a way to lock in some of my text messages?

Not applicable

I think its device dependent. On my HTC One (non windows phone) in the message you could select it and secure it via passcoded sector. It moved there and then I deleted all the rest.

The protected ones stay. You can however remove them if you change your mind.

My iphones keep messages and videos forever if I activate the setting.

Device dependent is my guess.

Good Luck

Re: Is there a way to lock my text messages?

Right now there is no setting to "lock" text messages to prevent them from being deleted.

There's a suggestion on the Windows Phone User Voice side requesting the ability you can vote for; Create a way to lock/save texts from being deleted – Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone
