    Even am facing the same issue but it's observed only after using Gpay after making a successful payment.

    when I use Gpay I use to turn on GPS for a period of time and turn it off as soon as the payment is done but still, I was able to see the GPS head in the notification bar.

    If I use other apps like maps or amazon which seek GPS permission as soon as I turn off my GPS, the GPS head is hidden from the notification bar.

    let me know if still anyone facing the same kind of issue after using Gpay.

    I tried restarting my phone. It now doesn't show the icon when i turn off the gps. i have denied permission to all apps to use it in background and even there's no app running it still shows the icon.

    After restarting phone the icon will be disabled from status bar but again whenever we use Google pay or any app which uses location then location icon comes back.

    Check which applications are using your location,
    Give permission for each app one at a time to know which app is using it.

    guys, it is due to the fact that one plus scout is is using the location, everytime you open the launcher and it's very wierd that even when we turn off the location, it still keeps using, for a fix please disable the permission to one plus launcher for location and this will be resolved.

    I have seen many people in the community asking for the solution and this is the only one that I have tried and tested.

    1. Go to OnePlus launcher app, scout settings,
    2.check the permission, by default it is using location.
    3. disable the app permission for location.

    the location usage is violation I think because even when we don't search or phone is idle or even when location is turned off, it is using the location.

    Location Icon is always ON even when location is turned off.
    Restarting Phone solves the problem but after sometime same error is repeated.

    I am facing this same issue in my OnePlus 7t pro , and I don't find any setting as scout in the launcher. But after restarting the devies it goes off but once I use the location manually even after turning the location off the symbol from top of my screen doesn't goes off 😑

    Even I observed the same thing... I thought it was just for that instance.. But when ever I used gpay, the issues starts..
    I am using gpay more than any other apps for daily activities so am still confused whether only gpay or any other apps or any bugs🤔

    As I see the comments, there are quite a few people telling gpay as issue. So Planning to substitute gpay with paytm or phone pe for few days and recheck on the issue..
    You guys too have a check on that and post you comments here.

    And more over I am still confused whether, irrespective of any app using the location services, the duration of location service enabled has any role in it ??? Coz for short tym, like for ordering in Zomato or swiggy, if switched on and ordered, once the order is placed and locatio is switched off, the symbol vanishes....

    It's because the onplus scout ( the launcher) using location by default ... Try to turn off permission from its app info...and then restart... Read that they may fix it on next update
