    The location is being accessed even on the home screen
    I disabled all the apps which were using location in background. I even denied Scout from using the location.
    But the issue persists.
    I got down to 40% with only 3 hrs of SOT today
    Please give a fix

    Hey there, some apps use background location access, if you wanna stop that identify the particular app and disable its background location access to get rid of it, there is nothing faulty with the device in this

    so I've been using my oneplus nord for a month now and working great... but now I've seemed to notice that the location symbol is visible in the status bar even when it's turned off..it wasn't an issue a while back.. this is just recently since I've been noticing this.. is it just me ? or someone else seeing this aswell... and if not an issue is there a fix ?

    Yes, it is already reported. Seems to be caused by the OnePlus scout function.

    You would have found this by searching.

    So why did you decide to make another post about it instead of commenting on an existing one?

    location icon is visible after switching it off also.
    Sir first when I was using location it would not show me the symbol only and it would just work normally but nowadays it is shows me the symbol and after switching it off still the symbol remains. Pls give a solution to recover it.

    Hey there
    This is because some apps have access to background location services which whenever needed use the location services resulting to this icon in status bar. Hope you got my point.
