Anyone know what the RED circle in upper corner means?

All of the sudden a red dot has shown up in the upper left corner where the menu button is. Anyone else have this and what does it mean? All paperwork is okay on auto and didn't get any email or text from Uber that anything is wrong. Any idea?

This means uber tagged you for going on the strike next week.
Nah, just kidding. I got it too today and first I thought it meant to show you there's surge while you're offline, but then I logged off several times (and closed the app completely) when there was no surge and that circle was still there.

Forgot to mention it was on iPhone that this is showing. Oh the strike thing I will be working be a big weekend in SoCalifornia with whole weekend of huge concerts at Irvine Amphitheater and so I will be working this coming weekend. A red dot is never a good thing, can not think of any instance when a red dot has been good.

New driver here and I have the same thing.

I thought that maybe I was missing info in my profile, and it turned out that I needed to take a pic of my inspection sticker and send it to uber (Uber never actually told me that I had to do this. I found this out by searching my online profile, not through the app).

I did that, they approved it, and it's still there.

Anyone have any idea?
