    Hi there, I wonder if you can help please? My friend is really concerned about her teenage sons online surfing. A notification icon keeps popping up that is in the shape of a 5 petal flower, single petal at the top, 1 at each side and 2 at the bottom. She can't get a photo of it and both of us have run Google searches without any success.
    There is also a circle icon that pops up quite frequently as well, literally just a circle, we can't find that one either.
    Any help would be appreciated, she is very concerned about her sons safety.
    Many thanks in advance

    well without a picture it will be hard to know exactly what the notifications are.

    and even if you did have pictures of them, you have to understand that the chance that someone here might recognize it is very small. the problem is that there are millions upon millions of apps and each will have their own notification icons. so unless it is something popular like facebook or youtube, most of these questions go unanswered. the only way to know is to look into the phone's notifications to see what the icons are for.

    If the phone is a Samsung, a 5-petals flower looking icon sounds like SmartThings. It can appear periodically in the notification area on Samsung Galaxy devices. .

    "Just a circle", as you might guess, is not enough to stand any chance of being identified. I have one app that pops up a circle notification daily (that's a solid circle rather than an open one), which is a UK covid tracking app, but I imagine that there are many, many other apps that just use a circle of some sort as a notification.

    Absolutely, she understands that I think she's just so concerned and can't get his phone to check. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply

    well i found this comprehensive list of google icons. but these are just standard android icons. manufacturers will either add or change those from google to make the os their own.


    maybe something from there will help you out........good luck.

    If the notification looks like the middle one, that's Samsung SmartThings...


    ...and the one on the left is Samsung Health. Because we've had a few "What's this notification? Is it a dating app?" posts about the figure with a ponytail.
