Battle Beacon counter layer still appearing on other portals after BB usage

After using a battle beacon (BB), the BB counter that usually appears during and at the end of a BB will appear on other portals you visit. If you manage to tap on the info icon, it will open up the info pages for the BB no matter where you are.


In case you missed it, here is a screenshot:

    Here is an additional video showing how the battle beacon info panels are accessed:

    It might be a bit quick, but here are steps on how to repoduce this:

    1. Use a Battle Beacon somewhere
    2. Go to another portal (can be close, can be far, it doesn't matter)
    3. Tap on the portal
    4. Press on the X in the bottom-centre of the screen to escape from the portal view
    5. Very quickly, as you press the X you should see the Battle Beacon counter layer appear at the top (where the portal owner agent name usually sits). If you are quick enough you can tap on the info icon to see the Rules of Engagement panels for Battle Beacons.

    Obviously the BB layer shouldn't be visible on any other portal, nor should the Rules of Engagement instructions be accessible anywhere else.

    This was also tested on Ingress Prime version 2.61.3-a841de4f
