Samsung hide Hotspot icon

Samsung Galaxy users can now hide the hotspot icon on their smartphones along with other indicator icons, thanks to the QuickStar Good Lock module.

Previously, users could customize the visibility of several indicator icons including VPN, Power Saver, Location, Date Saver, battery, Bluetooth, and more. Now, the Mobile Hotspot icon has been added to this list.

Last month, Samsung released the QuickStar 7.3.06.50 update, which introduced the ability to hide the mobile hotspot icon. This feature is particularly useful for users who prefer a cleaner quick panel and want to hide indicator icons.

To hide the Mobile Hotspot indicator icon on the quick panel of your Samsung devices, users just need to follow a few simple steps.

  • Open the Good Lock app on your Samsung Galaxy device.
  • Access the QuickStar Good Lock module and enable it by toggling the option.
