Google Bug says
This feature to remove/edit location does not work.
the explore options is only helpful if you get it right 100% of the time.
Currently you are not getting it right even 1/4 of the time, and many people don’t want to the location for privacy reasons.
So stop invading our privacy.
I just want not to have to do all that by having an option for it to not add a location to begin with.
