how do i take that icon off of notifications ??
The star icon means you have priority notifications enabled. Look under Settings > Sounds & Notifications.
I have the star icon as well. Even customer service didn't really know what it was when asked several months ago, including their manager.
I have removed all priority notifications and the icon is still there. Anybody have any ideas?
If it makes a difference I have a Kindle Fire HD 8 (6th Gen).
Use a bluetooth device that has a MUTE button. press the MUTE button MULTIPLE times until you see the star icon turn off and on.
