At one point I was interested in recording touch gestures using an iPhone Simulator + QuickTtime, so I dutifully followed the advice in this answer and ran the following command:

defaults write com.apple.iphonesimulator ShowSingleTouches 1

But now I want to record it without the touch gestures, so I reverse the above command like so:

defaults write com.apple.iphonesimulator ShowSingleTouches 0

while this did remove the middle gray circle, there is another black circle with a wider circumference like this:

I figured this has nothing to do with the iOS Simulator, it's more of a general QuickTime/macOS setting.

How do I remove this touch screen gesture? I am running macOS Mojave 10.14.5.
