'PrivateSMS7' Lets You Hide Your Entire Messaging History From the Messages App
Have you ever wanted to hide your entire messaging history on your iOS 7 device? With a new free jailbreak tweak called PrivateSMS7 by iOS developer Timm Kandziora, you can do this very easily.
The tweak adds a new feature to your Messages application that lets you hide all text message and iMessage histories on demand by tapping on the "Edit" button at the top left of the application. When you do this, you'll find a new "Hide" button at the top right of the application that, when tapped, hides all of your messages as if you've never sent or received a single text message or iMessage before.
The tweak also disables the message search feature, and renders the compose button useless whenever you have your messages hidden in order to prevent any unwanted access to your Messages application.
PrivateSMS7 doesn't have any options to configure – what you see is what you get. It's also worth noting that it appears to conflict with auki, so if you have auki installed, you'll have to pick between PrivateSMS7 or auki. If you want to give PrivateSMS7 a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. iOS 7 is required for the installation.
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.1.2
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2
Developer: Timm Kandziora

It's pointless as written...add the ability to hide individual conversations then it may be okay. As it is, who is it hiding the SMS from if all they have to do is unhide them? No real security there. Just use an app locker, better security.
