    Hallo, as you can see in the screenshot, location icon is always present in status bar if I select high precision.
    How can I know who is using this service?
    Is this normal?

    Settings>Location service and there you will find a list with the apps using it.
    And it is normal to see the icon as you have turned your GPS on. Turn it off and the icon is gone.

    I'm afraid I don't know how to tell which apps use the location 24x7 but what made the location icon disappear from the status bar for me, is changing the Mode from High accuracy to Battery saving.

    Setting your phone on battery savings will shut down your GPS completely, which was not wanted.

    Have you tried to wipe cache and data of the launcher?

    btw I read you got a OP8, so you’re a bit in the wrong place posting here.


    btw just read you got a OP8, so you’re a bit off posting in this section but while I’m at it, are you maybe from India an did you have Scout installed, if so, turn off location there.
