Why does the eye icon sometimes appear on phones

It would seem that you know everything about your smartphone: all talents, errors and symbols. But sometimes, especially if you are an Android owner, or if you just updated a program or installed a new unfamiliar app, your cell phone might surprise you. You can open it and – Ta Da! – There is an eye, staring at you from the top of the screen!

Everyone knows the meaning …

    Some information here is incorrect like WiFi calling was around in 2008/2009 by T-Mobile. Roaming doesn't always show that R, or with Unlimited Data plans, cost money, 2g speeds though. Just a few examples.

    This is for Android users only.
    I use iPhone and it doesn’t (even one of them) appear or look like the same on the screen.

    (Except for WiFi icon)
