No icon in notification area

Recommended Posts

I updated Malwarebytes for Android a couple of weeks ago, and since then there is no icon in the notification area. Is this be design?  I've checked all the settings and don't see one for this. I really like seeing the icon there as then I know MWB is running.  Is there an issue with my phone, or a way to get the icon back?

I'm running Malwarebytes on an Asus Z01FD running Android 8.0.0, security patch level November 5, 2018.

I had the same issue with Android 8.0.0.  All of a sudden after an update, the icon disappeared.  I contacted Malwarebytes support and they email me back this:

I see you are on Android OS version 8. Starting with version 8 this option is no longer available as the developers for android have disabled it. Therefore our developers have taken this setting out of our program.
