App Icon Badges Are Not Appearing on Galaxy Phone

An icon badge displays as a small circle or a number on the corner of an app's icon. Badges are based on notifications, so if an app has one or more notifications, it will have a badge. If you clear notifications, then the badge number may not be accurate.

Icon badges are only natively supported by the Samsung Experience Home launcher. If you are using an alternative launcher, badges may not be supported. Also, some apps will combine multiple notifications into one, and may only show 1 on the badge. Contact the developer for more information.
