Currently, text channels will only show the lock icon when the @everyone role is specifically denied the "view channel" permissions on it. However, voice channels will show it whenever the @everyone role cannot view the channel (by simply lacking the permission) even if it doesn't have any channel-specific perms.
I already know that this is a bug, but hear me out, I did post this in the correct place. The bug report for this is in favor of adding the lock icon back to text channels, which would look extremely ugly in servers that require you to have a role to chat. This suggestion is simply to change that focus into making the lock icon on VC channels work the same as on text channels, instead of the other way around.
