What is the use of visual information option in Power BI?

In the visual headers option in the formatting pane, I could see a feature called visual information. I am not sure what is this one for.

Anybody pls help me on this or point me to some links.

 

Thanks

See this article. Scroll to the visual header part. 
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/create-reports/desktop-visual-elements-for-reports

 

note that changes are not reflected in the desktop. You have to publish and see the changes online. 

it is useful for turning off icons that may confuse users, like the double down show next level icon. 

I fully turn off the visual header for slicers and usually cards too
