Is somebody else getting the green dot notification of the microphone being used in the back ground after using whatapp or like snapchat? Even if i close all background apps its still there. I would have to restart my phone for it to go away but it will still keep doing it.

I don't use either app, but see if wiping the cache partition and repairing apps from the recovery screen helps.

Yes it's a new security feature in 13. It's too let you know your microphone is on.

I think his problem is it won't go away when nothing is (should be) using his mic.

What it is, nor it's origins are questioned.
It seems to be malfunctioning for this user. It's not turning off, either because the software is flawed, or something is actually using (maliciously or benign) the microphone.

His/her concern for this is very Valid.
It's like having a check engine light on your car that won't turn off.

absolutely a valid concern. it's origin question came from a different poster in this thread, and I included that correction for anyone else that might read it. not as a correction to the original poster. I should have made that point clearer.

Just concerned about if its just a software issue or if something is actually using the microphone.
