In the Tumblr app, we'd like to exclude our own share extension from showing up when tapping the share button on posts within the app because reflagging is already built into the platform.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a share extension on iOS
2. Present a UIActivityViewController with items that would be supported by the extension
3. The extension of the hosting application shows up in that application with no way to exclude it

Expected Results:
There is a provided API to exclude the extension from showing up.

Actual Results:
No such API exists
