    My phone (Moto G4) is currently running Android Version 7.0, and Build number NPJ25.93-14.7 with security patch level on 9/1/2017.

    Last weekend, I didn't recall which apps got updated, but after updates done, there was an unknown icon added to notification bar. This icon doesn't match any installed app's icons nor can't pull it open. Its icon looks like mirror image of C or D (I have the image captured, just don't know how to upload).

    Any idea what this is or how to remove it? Please advise. Thank you.

    Welcome to the forums. Where on the status bar do you see that icon, left or right side?

    Thanks for registering! Just to be sure, you're not getting any notification for that icon when you pull down the status bar, right? I can't recognise that icon, but there's a simple trick to get information about which app created it.

    Long press an empty spot on your home screen - widgets - scroll down the list until you find 'settings 1x1' - long press and drag it to the screen - select 'notification log'. Tap the widget you just created and see if there's an entry related to that icon. If you can't see anything related, restart the phone, wait until the icon shows up again and then check the notification log again.

    Tell us how it goes.
