What you need to know

  • Oculus Support corrected a statement that claimed using the same Facebook accounts on two Oculus headsets would result in a ban.
  • Oculus Support clarified that using a Facebook account on multiple headsets is not against the Facebook Terms of Service.
  • A previous statement from an Oculus Support representative claimed that using a Facebook account on multiple headsets was against the Facebook Terms of Service.

Oculus Support issued a correction over the weekend regarding the use of one Facebook account across multiple Oculus headsets. An Oculus Support representative incorrectly stated that using a Facebook account simultaneously on two or more Oculus headsets was against the Facebook Terms of Service and would result in a ban. This is not the case, however, as the Oculus Support Twitter account has clarified that doing so is not against the Facebook Terms of Service.

The idea is for people to easily share their headset and eligible apps with friends or family while keeping their information separate. We will have more to share on this soon.

The initial news, which has since been shown to be incorrect, came as quite a surprise and led to frustration among Oculus headset users. With the Oculus Quest 2 being the first Oculus headset to require a Facebook account, many were concerned that using the same Facebook account on two headsets would result in a ban. Thankfully, this is not the case.
