    I have a sprint galaxy s6 and I don't believe I remember my status bar going up and down every few seconds. NOT when I actually pull it down and it covers my whole screen just when I'm doing whatever on my phone and the status bar keeps going up and down, up and down. And sometimes when I'm in certain apps it will come down and not show any notifications it will just be a black bar. I am currently using apex launcher. I did have Nova launcher but uninstalled bc it killed my battery. I even tried wiping my cache partition and going back to the original touchwiz phone launcher and it still does it. is this just normal and I'm going crazy I really don't know someone please help, thanks.

    Try Safe Mode.
    Tell us what that does.

    I tried it in safe mode and my status bar stopped doing it, then i got out of sade mode and now its doing it again. i hope i don't have to keep my phone in safe mode all the time just to stop this. Any other suggestions??

    Welcome as a new member.

    Having established through Safe Mode that a third-party app is causing the trouble, you will have to identify it and uninstall it, or at least disable it in your app manager. Try uninstalling or at least disabling your third-party launcher, and return to the stock launcher. If no go, it must be one if your other apps. Try to remember whether the trouble started after installing a particular app.

    Thank you everyone for the replies and I did uninstall all of my downloaded apps and the problem still wouldn't go away I finally uninstalled cm security and all of their partner apps and success! Found 360 security works just as well, so if anyone has problems with a constant status bar and has cm security installed well then there's your problem. Thanks again everyone !
