Every time I use the share feature to share a photo in Android 7.1.1, it suggests people who are not in my contacts and contacts I have not spoken to in years. My phone can't be rooted and the suggestions I've found, such as disabling direct share, do not seem to be available in recent versions of Android. I don't want to share photos to so firstname.lastname@example.org email I used once or to some person I'm not in contact with.
How do I remove share suggestions or disable them entirely? I would rather just choose the app to share with and then select the recipient from within the app.
Edit: I've also found that older versions of Android had a feature to long-press and drag suggested share items to pin them to the top pf the menu. This no longer appears to work either. Please help get these people off my share menu.
