So apparently this is some built in feature within lollipop of expiring quick setting toggles you don't use after 30 days. Coincidentally i've had my phone for about 30 days. I guess most people here had their phone around the same time, which is why you are now experiencing this problem. Stupid programming, stupid features, not enough user control!!! I hope there is a non-root solution for all us unrooted folk.

Check out this crap:

Unused tiles will automatically disappear from Quick Settings in Android 5.0 Lollipop

Google has given Quick Settings a major revamp with Android 5.0 Lollipop and filled it with useful toggles that people actually use in day-to-day life. One neat little feature that the company has added in Lollipop for Quick Settings is that unused items will automatically disappear after a certain time.

For example, if you don’t use W-Fi hotspot quick tile in Lollipop for a certain amount of time, it will automatically disappear. Similarly, if you frequently use an option from the Settings menu, it will automagically appear as a tile in Quick Settings.

However, Google does not provide a way to bring back a toggle that is removed, or remove one that comes up automatically.

As pointed out on Reddit by user eak125 though, you can fast forward, or go back a month or two in time to remove any unwanted toggles. To remove an unused toggle, simply head over to Settings -> Date & Time and change the date to a month from now. The unused quick tile will then automatically disappear. Do note though that the default toggles in Lollipop will always be present no matter what.
There is also another way to reset the Quick Settings tile using ADB, but the process is more cumbersome than the one pointed out by eak125.

Considering how limited quick settings was in KitKat, it is nice to see that Google has added such thoughtful new features to it in Lollipop to enhance its usability.

So.. I use my data toggle around 4 times a day. Why would it disappear ?

Also, I got this s6 2 weeks ago.

A lot of users are facing the same issue since today morning.
Is there a FIX ?

The same problem in Romania.
I tried to fill the online complaint form on Samsung's website, but it doesn't work (it's impossible to upload files, despite the issue is required; their website does not recognize the phone model or serial number, although the information is there and selected by their popups). What a tech support...

I understand what you're saying, but I guess it's not the case with that issue, apparently these tree toggles disappeared from many Galaxy S6 Edge (I haven't heard from Galaxy S6 owners having the same issue) today around the world, mobile data, hotspot and private mode. If this new lollipop feature was the case, these would not be the toggles to disappear in my phone and many others.

I agree with you. I used Hotspot all the time, so it definitely wasn't unused. However I think this might be a bug related to this feature. One stupid line of code somewhere.
