An icon I don't recognize is coming up on my phone and the screen locks if I touch it.

I did an update, and a random icon showed up on the top right corner of the phone. It looks like a remote control for a TV. If I touch it, the screen goes dark and locks me out. I have to remove the battery to get it to restart.

Hi, welcome to the forums! It's a known issue affecting many users. Which phone do you have? Once you restart the phone go to your app manager, search for Peel Smart Remote and disable it.
