Its google+. Go and uninstall any updates from your apps on the play store. My Droid Maxx had been doing the same thing ever since the kitkat update.
From what I read earlier in this thread, the VZW AVS Service allows for secure credit transactions. I assume that means ISIS wallet since Verizon blocks Google Wallet payment. I don't do phone point of sale payments via either, so turning off AVS doesn't affect me.
From what I understand, the VZW AVS service allows for secure over the phone transactions. It is NOT needed for ISIS(now Softcard) mobile wallet. I have the VZW AVS service disabled on my phone because of the message upon starting the phone and am STILL able to use ISIS without a problem.
I've made purchases via phone (VZW AVS Sercive is disabled) from both PayPal and Google Wallet and no problems there, either.
I still have no idea what this service really does and Verizon is not saying anything either.
Vzw avs has stopped is a software issue happening with androids, Verizon does not make the software updates. If you continue having issues call Verizon for troubleshooting. I get calls about it all the time in Verizon customer service.
Multi old verizon apps in background taking over newer ones. Clear data cache Un installed Google play. Then did a factory reset hasn't done it since. Oh clear all cache also
However making purchases over the phone and making "secure" purchases over the phone are not necessarily the same thing.
I am constantly getting the "Unfortunately VZWAVSService has stopped" message and in addition my GPS does not function. This is a major problem as I use an aviation app to fly with. No GPS functions will work right now, neither auto or aviation. HELP!
I definitely want to be sure this works for you! What model device are you using? Does this happen when you are in Safe Mode?

I am still getting this. But only when I reboot my phone. I deleted a bunch of unnecessary apps too. I think this is the reason my phone is running so slow and it's starting to get really frustrating. I haven't even had the phone (GS5) a full 5 months. Ridiculous.
