Permanent notification WITHOUT key-icon in status bar - it is possible

Hi, just have purchased my license, thanks. (Android 4.x/5.x)

There is just one annoying thing: The key-icon in status bar.

Many apps have the same problem, when permanent notification is needed. Usually they set the icon invisible (or have A user option to do it). Advantage:
- It is not visible in status bar
- It is not visible in lock screen (important)
- But you can see the AdGuard notification, if you pull down the notification bar, so you have full control and easy access to AdGuard

Example apps with this excellent behavior: Tasker, 3G Watchdog Pro and many more

I Would love AdGuard to have the same behavior (or a user option for this).

Thanks

@Dario12v:
This is not exactly what I meant.

Permanent notification is needed, so it probably will not be possible to remove it. No problem, see #3 in my post.

BUT: Icon in status bar (which is also responsible for lock screen notification) should be hidden (in my opinion). See #1, #2 in my post.

The problem with this notification is that we can't control it.

It is Android's notification about any active VPN connection.

More than this, this notification presence and appearance also depends on the device.
Normally in Lollipop it is a small key icon in the right corner of the screen.
But some devices has larger key icon (like common notification icon) in the left-top corner.

What for lock screen notification, you may try using the way from this article:
