    Hi guys,

    Wonder if anyone can say why I have the geofence icon showing next the battery icon? I think that's what it is, it's the gps icon but not solid, just the outline.

    Any way I can find out why it's there? I don't have any notify me things set up in find my friends, and don't use the reminders app...

    Any help appreciated!

    Martin

    Settings->Privacy->LocationServices

    Which app shows it has a geofence set up?

    Does anyone else have issue with some apps keeping geofence location lock on?

    After I ran groupon app and fruit ninja app. My geofence location is always on for those two apps unless I turne off location services for those apps. It's annoying to have a geofence location always on in your status bar.

    Why does Fruit Ninja even need to know your location? :confused:

    That's what I wondered! Apparently for advertising purposes.

    Groupon was the one causing that for me.
    I disabled it in location services and went away.

    Apps suppose to ask you first if you allow, once, during initial set up, but u can always explicitly disable it afterwards under settings ->
