Displayed on the Plugin Manager as Quick Icon - Akeeba Backup Notification.

This plugin displays a notification icon in Joomla's status bar (Joomla 3) or administrator notification module (Joomla 4), displaying the backup status. If your latest backup, taken with any profile, was taken longer than the configured amount of time in this plugin the icon will change color and display a warning message that your backup is out of date. Clicking on the icon will start a backup with the backup profile you have configured in this plugin.
