    No it's just on my lock screen or when I tap the screen and it comes on that's when I see it. I tried pressing on it, tried long hold, I just can't get rid of it

    It sounds like the Samsung Notes app pinning to your AOD. But I cannot be sure! Try the following:
    • Go into your phones settings,
    • Hit the search button and look for Always on Display,
    • Go in there and select Always on Display again,
    • At the bottom of the page you will see Always on Display Alerts - go in there and look for apps that are allowed to pin to the display. Switch any off you don't want.
    Hope this helps.

    If you have the notes application check and see if you pinned anything?
