VPN and Safari Menu

When my MacBook starts up it loads both Bitdefender Shield and VPN icons on the top menu on Safari. I've disabled the VPN in my extensions yet the icon still loads and I have to open its settings to quit it. I don't have any extra room for the icon and it blocks another icon I need.

Is there a way to prevent the VPN icon from loading? I use a different VPN and won't be using it in the future.


I'm using OS Big Sur 11.2.3

Safari 14.0.3 

I appreciate your input on this! 😀

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
