    It is definitely the icon for a connected vpn, if you are using any. I would also like to ask sometimes when i do not use a vpn the key icon still appears on the top left of the scree. Why does it not go when i am not using a vpn? Help?

    The VPN can remain active even after exiting all apps.

    Below is how to identify the source and kill it
    1. Settings > Wireless & Networks > More > VPN
    2. Click the cog next to the app name > Disconnect

    Setting might be elsewhere if not on Android 7.1.1

    Cheers
