MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS AND APP SHARING

Multiple Accounts


Learn about Multiple Accounts on Oculus Quest 2 and Quest
With Quest 2 and Quest, you can add up to three additional accounts to your device. The admin account on the device can add additional accounts in-VR. All accounts will need to login with Facebook to have their own unique account and profile.
How do they work?
Additional accounts will be able to install and use apps that they have purchased from the Oculus Store, as well as apps purchased by the admin account if app sharing is turned on. Additional accounts can save their own app progress, media files and make use of social platform features like Parties, Leaderboards and Achievements, as well as creating and customizing their own avatar. Apps installed by additional accounts won’t take up extra storage space on the device if the admin account already has the app installed.
Privacy
Each account on a device has its own information stored separately. Accounts on a device do not have access to the information stored on other accounts, including:
  • In-game progress
  • High scores
  • In-app settings

App Sharing


Learn about App Sharing on Oculus Quest 2
With Oculus Quest 2, you can share eligible apps with additional accounts on your device. Additional accounts can only access shared apps on the device where app sharing is turned on.
How does it work?
Currently, an admin account can only share apps on one device. You can switch which device has App Sharing turned on by following these directions.
Additional accounts can purchase their own apps, but those apps will not be shared with other accounts on the device. If you log into another device as an additional account, you will have access to all the apps and experiences you’ve purchased.
