This question already has an answer here:
Since upgrading Whatsapp to version 2.18.52 contact names do not appear on whatsapp lock screen notifications. For example, if I get a message from Mom, whatsapp only displays the whatsapp logo and “message”, without displaying the sender. I used to be able to see just the contact name (“Mom has sent you a message”), but now, no Names are displayed. This just happened as I updated to ios 11.3.1. Anyone having a similar problem? Please advise how I can fix this issue.
