Default How to clear "Location" useage history page?

In Settings>Location

It lists apps using location.

How can I clear that list, or possibly prevent an app from showing up there to begin with?

I have the apps hidden via Hide it Pro, of course I'd like anything showing them to exist to well, not.

I am rooted and unlocked, but on stock for the moment.

Go to settings -> location ->under location reporting, turn both those off. That should work, along with clearing the location history under one of those tabs.

Yea, that may work, however it'll also cripple a bunch of Google stuff I actually use..

I was hoping for a way to just clear the list shown on demand, or stop that panel from reporting all together without disabling it.

Thanks for the idea, though. Hopefully it won't come down to that.
