Edited by Thor, Gordon, Eng

Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we will show you how to turn the location icon on or off while using a Microsoft Lumia 535. When you enable or disable the location icon, it does not change the function of location services. If you decide to disable the location icon, it simply reduces clutter on your screen. If you would like to turn location services on or off, please refer to the video on VisiHow that focuses on that task specifically.
