Hello people, this morning I have noticed a flashing eye symbol on the top of my phone. It appears on the bar where my battery level and the time appear. This eye is only there when I go on Wiki Wirral and no other site. Am I being watched or just being paranoid smile any ideas please folks ? Cheers

If its a Samsung then it's keeping the screen visible as you look at the phone. It stops it going to sleep as you read.

Cheers Mark. Yes it is a Samsung but I don't know why this has only appeared this morning. Now you have told me what it is I will go into settings and see if it can be turned off. Thank you.

It uses the front camera to see if you are watching the screen, if so it keeps screen lit and puts the eye symbol up.

The function is called "Smart Stay" so disable that.

It comes under settings-display somewhere
