Does anyone know what this red box is in the bottom right hand corner of my screen? I cannot expand it, only close it, but it has come back three times...



Thanks for any help you can offer!

No idea, but have you opened Activity Monitor to see if you can identify what is running that could be related to the red "box"? You have quite a few apps open, maybe it's one of those?

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Thank you! I opened the Activity Monitor and it was the Boingo hot spot app which is weird it just started working on it's own, I never use Boingo but once at an airport 6 mos ago I would say. Maybe I should remove that program. Thank you for your help!
