    Welcome to Android Central! Have you actually turned the alarm off? Open the Clock/Alarm app, go to the Alarms section, and turn off any alarms that have been turned on.

    Are you certain it's the alarm icon from the stock Clock/Alarm app? Could it be a similar-looking icon from a different app? What happens if you set an alarm using the stock Clock/Alarm app--do you see another alarm icon appear next to the one you're talking about?

    It's an alarm clock - when I did set an alarm - this tiny clock showed up - after the alarm went off, it went away, since that - the alarm clock icon pops up every day - I have no alarms set - What would be a similar looking icon that looks like a clock - I don't use my phone a lot, no added aps -I set an alarm and no other icon shows up beside the one that keeps sporadically showing up

    Try to restart the phone in safe mode to see if you still have the same problem.

    Go to Settings-Applications-Application Manager and look for the Clock App, try clearing cache and data under storage settings.

    How do you start in safe mode - I'm not ignorant, I just went from having an S4 phone for 4 years with NO problems, to this phone - I'm trying to understand the features and why it's doing this stuff. Thanks

    I had a similar icon, but wasn't an alarm icon at all. In my case, the icon simply means the location is on daylight savings time.

    OP, did you check to see if smart stay is turned on? Icon is a clock with an 'eye' lower right.

    I noticed the same clock icon in my status bar under Marshmallow. It turned out to be an app called Tasker that I installed which had a setting "Use Reliable Alarms" set to "Always".

    Do any of you have the Google clock installed along with the stock clock?

    Has anyone found a resolution to this issue? I too have a clock/alarm icon that has recently showed up in my notification bar and I don't have any alarms set. After the icon showed up, I installed the Clock+ app which has the option to hide the alarm icon but that is not working either.

    I just want to add a message that says "me too". I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I have been searching on Google for hours and have seen no solution (that works) for getting rid of the alarm clock icon.

    I believe you have an app that has triggered an alarm state on your device. I have the app called Tasker on my tablet and I configured the app's settings for "Alarms Reliable?" to "Always" and that caused the constant alarm icon to appear in the notification bar.

    Hi All, I think I may have a solution (at least it worked for me, and this has been bugging me for ages).
    - I had the standard 'Alarm' widget on my homescreen. When I would click in to edit it, it would only show me one alarm. When I turned that alarm off, the Alarm icon was still showing in the task bar. And even worse, randomly the alarm would go off at 6am some mornings. I checked all possible programs and stopped pretty much every service imaginable in Developer Mode. To no avail.

    However, this did work for me:
    - I turned off my alarm in the existing widget on my home screen.
    - I created a new, second, Alarm widget somewhere else on my home screens. By default it did not have any alarm on (but the task bar icon still was showing at the top that alarm was set).
    - I opened the new alarm, and presto magic, it showed me that I have two alarms available to edit. The one 'real' alarm that I wanted (but is turned off), and the hidden/annoying one with no name which is randomly set for 6am.
    - Simply clicked the X to delete the 6am one, and the icon in the task bar disapeared.
    - Deleted the second Alarm Widget from my home screen... and life is back to normal!

    I would consider this a bit of a bug since the original Alarm widget is not showing all the alarm options, but by adding a new/second widget, it seems to load all the alarms and display properly, allowing you to kill the unwanted alarms.

    Hope that works for someone else out there.

    I somewhat have this problem. Mine is after a phone call or text the alarm icon appears and then disappears after about 30 seconds or so. It never did that before I updated to version 6. I just updated yesterday. Someone suggested that I wipe the system cache clean, I did that and still have that problem. I tried updating all my apps clearing out caches. Again it only happens after a call or text. Help, anyone else with suggestions?

    Do you have a schedule set for "do no disturb". If you have it set, I believe that the alarm icon will be at the top.

    Alarm icon appear on the top of the screen because of your address book app trying to sync your contacts, messages and some of your data, so to remove the alarm icon just goto settings application Manger show system apps and lookup for address book sync app and address book(example: for AT&T users AT&T address book and sync) on the both apps clear cache, clear data and block notifications.

    That's it....
