Purpose of side BW icon on mobile device

What is the purpose/use of the Bitwarden icon that shows on the side of the screen of a mobile device? It showed up several weeks ago and it doesn’t seem to do anything. Is there a way to turn it off? It is just cluttering up the screen and interferes with screen use.

I noticed this with a recent Samsung update so possibly other android OS will have this as well.
I believe it is due to the accessibility settings for Bitwarden and the pop-up overlay on mobile.

You can disable this within the accessibility settings of your phone under accessibility button, and turn off the app for Bitwarden. This will still leave the pop-up overlay if you use that :slight_smile:

Absolutely bugged me so much after the initial update until I figured out to disable it. Didn’t realize I also had some family members who suffered with the annoyance for several months before they asked how to remove the pop-up button as well. :joy:
