    hmmmm no idea.

    so we get this kind of question every day. with millions of apps (and even websites) that have notification icons, there is just to many to be able to recognize just from seeing what the icon looks like. you might get lucky and someone here might be able to recognize it, but most of these threads go unanswered.

    the only tru way of knowing is to go into the phone's settings and look for the notification. but most of the time, the phone is inaccessible for one reason or the other.

    The "N" is Facebook Messenger.

    Capture+_2019-11-23-22-35-33.png The blue & white italic "N" is the Facebook messenger. I think the orange add on means you have messages waiting. Here's what my Facebook Messenger icon looks like. The number is from my UI.

    The orange attachment to the icons could mean that its locked and can only be opened with a security password or biometrics. As to what type of app it is is impossible to know as icons can be changed with themes. Samsung has built in app lock, MIui also has one.
