Question [Request] Remove NFC From Status Bar

Hey guys....

I am curious if anyone knows of a way to remove the NFC notification from the status bar while it is on. I am using stock rooted with s-off on VZW.

Any help would be much appreciated.

You could use this xposed module: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...nse-6-t2733409

It has the ability to hide other icons as well, and also many other changes that aren't even related to the status bar.

For security reasons I keep NFC turned off unless I want to use it. Leaving it on all the time is a potential security hole.

I have a tasker profile that turns NFC on when I go into Google Wallet and it turns it off when I exit wallet.

Therefore I only have the icon up there when wallet is open.

Can you explain what app enables you to do that?

You have profiles which are things you want to do. You have tasks that are specific actions.

You will also need secure settings plug in from the Play Store.


Once those are installed create two tasks.

One is NFC On and the other is NFC Off. When creating the tasks you will be on tasks tab. Click the plus sign, name task NFC On. Click the plus sign again and select Plugin then secure settings. Now click the pen/pencil and select System + Actions then select NFC and select On. Then back and save.

Now do the same except name it NFC Off. And do as above except select NFC off instead of NFC on. Back out and save.

Now switch to Profile tab and click the plus sign to create a profile. Select Application. Then select wallet (or any other app that you want NFC to turn on for) It will bring up a list of tasks you have built and select NFC on. Now you will see your profile and it will be expanded and showing that NFC On is the task performed. Now long press the area where it says NFC On (under the profile) and you will get a pop up. Select Exit Task and then GPS Off. Make sure the slider for the profile is set to On.

Now whenever you activate wallet, it will turn on NFC and it will pop up into the status bar.

When you exit wallet, tasker will turn off NFC and the icon will disappear.
