Control your ads experience on Oculus

There are a few things you can do to control your ad experience on the Oculus.
See why we're showing you an ad:
  1. 1.
    Tap on the sponsored post.
  2. 2.
    Tap Why am I seeing this ad? to see reasons for why you're seeing the ad (example: you visited the advertiser's website).
Hide an ad:
  1. 1.
    Tap on the sponsored post.
  2. 2.
    Tap Hide this ad.
  3. 3.
    Select from the list of options to let us know why you don’t like this ad. This will help us better guide your ad experience on Oculus.
Hide all ads from an advertiser:
  1. 1.
    Tap on the sponsored post.
  2. 2.
    Tap Why am I seeing this ad?
  3. 3.
    Tap Hide all ads from this advertiser.
Report an ad:
  1. 1.
    Tap on the sponsored post.
  2. 2.
    Tap Report this ad.
  3. 3.
    Select from the list of options to let us know why you're reporting this ad.
Similar to our Community Standards, we have Ad Policies that outline which ads are and aren't allowed on Oculus, such as prohibitions on ads that are fraudulent or promote violence, or illegal activity. When you report an ad, it goes through our ad review system. The review process uses automated tools, and in some cases manual review, to check ads against our Ad Policies. When we confirm a violation of our policies, we'll remove the ad.

Adjust what ads you see

If you're seeing ads that aren't interesting to you, you can adjust your ad preferences. You can visit your ad preferences page from desktop, mobile or in-VR and easily manage things like your interests and your profile information to get a more personalized experience.
To adjust your ad preferences from the Oculus mobile app:
  1. 1.
    Tap your profile picture in the top left.
  2. 2.
    Tap Account Settings, then tap Ad Preferences.
From here, you can view the advertisers you’ve most recently seen ads from, and you can choose to see fewer ads about selected topics. If you don’t want Facebook to use information based on your activity on websites or apps off Facebook for the purpose of showing you ads, you can also turn this off in your ad preferences. Keep in mind, changing your ad preferences influences which ads you see, but it won’t change the total number of ads you see.
Note: You will be asked to log in to your Facebook account the first time you hide or report an ad or adjust your ad preferences.
