I recently started seeing the alarm icon on my notification bar even though I don't have an alarm set.

Why is this happening? What can I do to find what's making this show? I don't want to disable the icon since I want it show when I do have an alarm set.

This image shows the icon I'm referring to

  • Do you have Tasker installed?

When you enable Tasker it starts showing an alarm icon in the status bar. there is a setting in Tasker that is the culprit for this. "Preferences -> Monitor -> Use Reliable Alarms" when set to always on it puts the icon there. Set it to When Off and the icon goes away.
