In several cases, applications running in the background will leave an icon in the notification bar of the smartphone. This may not seem like a big deal, but it can distract many people.

Some people get used to it, ignore it or accept that the icon will be there forever. However, some people have turned off application notifications so that the icons do not appear in the status bar.
You might think that the only way to stop apps from displaying notifications in the status bar is to turn them off completely. But that is not the case. Xiaomi MIUI 12.5 allows you to “minimize” notifications, so they can be viewed only by raising the notification shade of the phone.
If these app icons are also bothering you and you want to know how to get rid of them without affecting the app notifications that generate them, then follow the simple steps.
How to hide?
- Open Settings of your smartphone
- Go to Notifications and Control Center
- Click on App notifications
- Find the application whose icon you want to hide
- Disable the option that says Show notification icons
Xiaomi MIUI users can perform the same method when they want their phone to show the notification icons. Just find the application and enable the option “Show notification icons”.
