Games and Apps From Unknown Sources

Certain developers may create applications for Rift using the Oculus SDK that are not distributed through the Oculus platform. While Oculus allows this, applications from such developers have not been reviewed by Oculus for security, comfort, content, or health and safety. We term these applications as coming from 'unknown sources.'

Developers will need to enable this mode to build new Oculus projects.

To enable or disable downloads from unknown sources:

  1. Start from the Oculus App on your computer, select the gear icon on the upper right.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select General from the menu on the left.
  4. Locate the Unknown Sources section.
  5. Select the toggle to enable this feature.
    will appear to verify that this feature is activated.
  6. Select the toggle again to disable this feature.
    will appear to verify that this feature is deactivated.
