Oculus headsets will soon require a Facebook account

Today, Oculus announced some important updates to how people log into Oculus devices, while still keeping their VR profile. Starting in October 2020, everyone using an Oculus device for the first time will need to log in with a Facebook account.

All existing users who already have an Oculus account will have the option to log in with Facebook and merge their Oculus and Facebook accounts. All existing users who choose not to merge their accounts will have the option to continue using their Oculus account for two years.

After January 1, 2023, support will end for all Oculus accounts. Those who choose not to merge their accounts at that time will be allowed to continue using their device, but full functionality will require a Facebook account.

According to Oculus — “Giving people a single way to log into Oculus—using their Facebook account and password— will make it easier to find, connect, and play with friends in VR.”
