Default Mic icon on notification bar

There's an icon for a microphone on my notification bar on my lock screen. As soon as I swipe to unlock, it goes away. I'm not rooted and running stock 4.2.2 on AT&T with MF3 firmware. Anyone know what it is? I'm somehow uncomfortable with a mic that thinks it's 'live" the entire time my phone is off... or locked. I initially suspected it might be part of some voice recognition unlock feature... but I thought I had turned every piece of idiocy off on this phone.

You have "Wake up in lock screen" enabled. Settings>My device>Lock screen>Wake up in lock screen. Delete check mark, bye bye mic icon.

Most excellent. Thank you. So... what does "wake up in...' mode do. I unchecked it, the mic is gone... and it still "wakes up" ie: I turn it on), in lockscreen mode...

The phone will wake up if you yell secret words (user selectable) at it. Give it a try.
