I recently installed the eBay app, and have immediately noticed a thumb bar thing at the bottom of the screen. Pics are below. I highly doubt it's from eBay.

I've had the same apps on my phone that I've had previously on the Nexus 4, and never saw this. Even with eBay installed. I have to reboot the phone to get rid of it.

Any ideas?

I found out. An app I had updated security for the Galaxy S5's finger print scanning, and is leaving a bar on non Galaxy devices. Sheesh....

I had this too, a reboot fixed it. I thought I was going crazy.

Edit: I checked my running processes and it turns out to be lastpass at fault. There was a floating fingerprint overlay process I had to kill since it just returned.

Yeah, LastPass just added S5 fingerprint support, looks like it leaked to other devices, might want to file a bug report.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that it was the lastpass app. I hope this bug doesn't become common when apps update for finger print scanning tech.
