    Suspicious Tray icon!

    Hello friends,

    I am new here.

    I need help regarding the tray icon on my PC.

    I am using windows 10. I have noticed the tray icon as shown in the image below. It looks like a lock. I cant do anything about it. I tried right click, middle and left click. But nothing opens up. Seems suspicious to me.

    Could someone help me please?

    Thanks in advance!Click image for larger version.

    If you search for the Select which icons appear on the taskbar option in settings it should tell you what it is.
