Hide the Currently Playing Songs Info from iPhone Lock Screen

This goes for all the iPhone users and for all those who have always wanted a way to disable or hide the music and the songs being played on their phone from the Lock Screen. Whenever you play some song on your iPhone the song information like the Album name, artist name and the song image is displayed on the iPhone Lock Screen.

This is sort of an added feature that helps us in knowing which song is currently being played just by looking at the phone but this sometimes can minimize our privacy. There can be times when you wish that no body can find out which song you are playing, to add to your privacy or simply you wish to have a cleaner interface on your iPhone display.
