DevTouchMovementMode sample code is broken

Reproduction Steps
Use the sample code from the DevTouchMovementMode documentation page: StarterPlayer.DevTouchMovementMode

Expected Behavior
It does what the documentation suggests.

Actual Behavior
It throws an error:

Insufficent permissions to set DevTouchMovementMode - Studio
The current identity (2) cannot setDevTouchMovementMode (lacking permission 5) - Client - LocalScript:4

Not sure. Trying to find a way to disable the mobile UI temporarily and this is one of that solutions that probably would have worked if not for the error.

Issue Area: Engine
Issue Type: Other
Impact: Moderate
Frequency: Constantly

Hey thanks for the report! We have filed a ticket to our internal database and we’ll come back with an update when we’ll have one!

Based on the code sample, particularly the use of Players.PlayerAdded, you are getting this error because this should be run on the Server (Script) rather than the client (LocalScript)
