    I would have sworn it was on Settings / Lockscreen

    I saw it this morning, and turned it OFF.... but it did not remove the icon, it only turned it RED.

    Now, I can't find it to turn it back on, and make it go green again.

    I just found it again.

    Go to Lock Screen, turn off the PinCode and set it back to Swipe.
    now it shows up again, and mine is unchecked.

    Depends on the particular lock-screen I think and what actual phone you've got there. Sometimes they show a dial pad, others can hide it and you slide up or something to access the emergency dialler.

    Sammy Note 4 here, when I went back to set the pincode again, it then allows me to choose:
    • Show Content
    • Hide Content
    • Do NOT show notifications

    and on the Emergency Dialer, you press on the icon and then you swipe outwards in any direction.
