Hey XDA. I must query your limitless knowledge. I've recently started using hotspot shield vpn, and I have two vpn icons. One is a system icon that I can't hide (it's the one with the key icon, that I want hidden) and one with the green shield (it's animated, and I would prefer to keep it.)

So, I'm looking for a way to hide the one with the key. I've searched for an XPOSED module but haven't seen one that does what I'm asking. Any ideas?

This did the trick for me. I set up an OpenVPN server at home and was irritated that the openvpn app icon as well as the android vpn key notification icon were present. I was easily able to hide the stock key icon using the xposed app es0tericcha0s reccommended.

VPN permanent notification, even on block screen is very annoying indeed. So many configuration knobs in Android and you cannot get rid of it! In case of Opera Max is like an advertising, you see the Opera logo every time you watch at your blocked phone. incredible!
