    We want the option that says "Remove geo-location" and underneath it says "From photos and videos that you share with a link, but not by other means"
    .
    This option is currently off, indicated by the gray switch on the right-hand side. This function removes the geo-location from videos and photos that we share with a link, which gives us a bit more privacy because we don't reveal so much information.
