    This icon popped up a few days ago. It looks like a screen cast icon bu5 I'm not casting and it won't go away.

    That's what I thought bur there's no screen cast app running. Rebooted and it comes back.

    maybe go into settings and see if there's any there that's set weird. also, you could, as a test situation, download BK Package Disabler and disable screen cast to see if the icon goes away. useful for other things too. no affilation

    Tinfoil hat over the phone? Always works for me if a reboot doesn't fix it

    The last thing I did before I noticed it was gone was run the device maintenance.

    Not sure how to eliminate the icon but it appears on my phone whenever I go near a Samsung Smart TV, for example when I visit Best Buy icon appears on it's own.

    So Cisco had something called proximity where their video units emit a tone at a frequency we can't hear but that their app can pick up.. maybe similar?

    Is your phone set as visible to other devices?
