screenshot of menu bar

I don’t know when it appears.

Could you tell me how to remove or add the icon?


In that menu, click 'Open Network Preferences ...'
and in the next dialog, uncheck the option 'Show VPN status in menu bar'.

You can usually (but not always) remove a menulet icon by holding down the Command key and dragging it off.

However, this looks to be part of some installed third-party VPN software, so you may need to uninstall the whole thing.
