    Is it a solid purple or an outlined color? Outlined may mean that find my friends has someone 'tracking you' & it will send an alert to them when you arrive or leave a specific location.

    Go to Settings/Privacy/Location Services. This will show you a list of all the apps that can use Location Services depending on the toggle setting. Scroll all the way down to the bottom and tap System Services. This screen lists all of the system services that can use location services and each can be toggled on or off. At the bottom of this screen is a toggle that will allow all of the services above that are toggled on to use location services but will not turn on the status bar icon on the home screen when doing so. Set all of these toggles as you desire. I have all the system services toggled on and the status bar icon toggle off on my phone and I don’t see the icon unless an app is actively using the location services. I tried toggling the status bar icon to the on position on my iPhone 5 and I do see the icon much more often.
