    This is not part of High Sierra, but can you go open up Keychain Access and go to Preferences within there and in the General tab you should have a "Show Keychain status on Menu Bar" option. If so, uncheck that and the lock will disappear.

    I don't use it, but I see you have Dashlane on the top bar. Could it be from that? (Clutching at straws here.)

    Jake, I dont think so from Dashlane.. I checked setting and dont see any secure or lock to secure... Looks more like Keychain, now as what Ashwin said above "Keychain Access and go to Preferences within there and in the General tab you should have a "Show Keychain status on Menu Bar" option. If so, uncheck that and the lock will disappear " I m wondering why is my preference not showing what it should show?? Look at my reply below Ashwin, thats what I get
    Thanks in Advance

    Yeah, that's all I get, too, but I'm on Mojave, so things may have changed. I was looking at the menu items and it just seems strange to have a lock on the bar, then the menu items it showed. Just out of curiosity, is it there in a Safe Boot?

    Well looks like it's a bug in High Sierra's Keychain Access, so if you had enabled this feature with an older version of macOS, you cannot disable it with High Sierra since the menu option to do so is missing (as we've both confirmed).

    One possible method of fixing this is to basically try to find a specific file from the older version of macOS and use that to unset this flag and hopefully have it be unset for time immemorial. Otherwise, you'll just have to live with this lock option in the menu bar until a later update to High Sierra or Mojave fixed this.

    Can you drag it off the Menu bar, by holding command and dragging it off?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Ashwin, I using High Sierra since Jan and this lock showed up around Mar or April, should be still a way to remove it,

    Now Bob mentioned about moving it away from Menu Bar using command works perfectly but where did it go ??
    Thanks in Advance

    It works the same as dragging an App off the Dock. It's no longer there.

    This sure looks familiar:
    Lock the Mac OS X Desktop via Menu Bar
    Lock the Mac OS X Desktop via Menu Bar

    And if you can't deal with it normally, I'd just delete the appropriate .plist preference file if your HS OS X can't do it on its own or with your help.


    EDIT:
    Oppps, I guess I should have updated the page before posting and I would have seen the problem had been fixed it seems.
