The Oculus Quest 2 was the first VR headset from Meta that required a Facebook account to play when it launched in October 2020. While Meta is in the process of changing this requirement (opens in new tab), you’ll still need to use a Facebook account until August 2022.
A Facebook account makes it easy to find friends so you can socialize and play games in VR together, but it’s also a big problem if your Facebook account is banned or disabled for some reason. If your account has been disabled, you won’t be able to play on your Quest 2, so it’s vitally important to regain access to your account if you want to get back into gaming again. If you’re in this conundrum, don’t freak out. Facebook says it has the resources at the ready to solve your problem.
