Hi. I have a Samsung galaxy A51 and a new update just came out. One thing this update contains is a green little light that will appear next to my battery icon to show me that the camera is on. It's really making me upset and throws me off, it didn't show me the camera was on until this dumb software update. Please tell me how to turn it off.

@ari8 The green light indicator is going to be there whenever you are using your microphone or camera. You can't prevent that. It is a new anti-spying security feature so that you know when either are accessed. 

You can turn off camera and microphone access in the quick panel.

That's upsetting, it catches my eye to much and throws me off. It's very frustrating. Thanks for your time
