    I've noticed over the past week or so that I am getting a frequent "location found" notification, and when I swipe to remove it it reappears. I haven't d/l'd any new location specific app's of late, but I'm wondering if an update is the culprit. But which one? Or is this a Marshmallow or carrier issue?

    I have an S7 Edge on Verizon Wireless. Thanks.

    Does anyone have access to your Google account? That notification usually appears when the device has been located remotely, either from Samsung's FindMyPhone or Google's Device Manager.

    If you long press the notification, does it say where it comes from?

    If Device Manager was locating the phone, and additional notification would appear.

    Do you have any weather apps running? Accuweather has an option where it will update weather on wakeup.

    Google Location services (maps and such) may be locating it as well.

    Look at your location settings in the menu, and remove location access from everything.

    If it needs your location, it will have to prompt you first.

    Thanks for the responses. To answer:
    -No, no one else has access to my Google account.
    -When I long press the notification, it does not tell me which app. Which is why I think it's a Google service. But it's admittedly a SWAG.
    -The notification I'm actually getting is the "Location Found" one, which is the top one in the grab above.
    -Good idea re: checking which apps might be using location and deactivating. I'm thinking it might be a Google Location Services issue, so I did remove location access from the Google App and a few other non-Google app's that had location enabled to see if that does the trick. But I kept it on for Google Maps and Gas Buddy, which i use somewhat regularly. I'll let you know what happens here.

    Thanks again, guys.

    OK, not that it helps, but this seems to be a persistent Verizon bug. There are also reports on the V10, G4, and V20 forums. What might help is that some say it has to do with the Google app. You can try revoking the Location permission for it and see if that does it.

    Also try to disable Wi-Fi Scanning in your Location settings.

    There is a pre installed program called Verizon Location Agent, that might be the one.
