How to add multiple accounts to your Oculus Quest 2

The multi-user account feature allows you to add up to 3 additional accounts on Oculus in addition to the original admin account. You are free to add and remove these accounts, so you don’t have to worry about being blocked or exceeding your limits.

As this is an experimental feature, the process may be changed or eliminated at any time. If you don’t see the option, it may not be available on your headset yet or it may have been removed.

To add a second, third, or fourth account to your Oculus Quest 2:

Turn on your Quest 2 and turn it on.

Choose Settings (gear icon) From the main navigation bar.

Choose experimental function.

Choose Share multiple accounts and libraries Toggle and color it blue.

How do multiple accounts work on Quest 2?

Before the multi-user feature was introduced, there could only be one account on each Quest 2. This means that if you want other people to use your Quest 2, or if you want a family or group of friends to share a single headset, everyone using the device has to use the original user’s account. There was no customization. All app and game purchases had to be made by the admin. Individual users were unable to save their game progress or high scores and any social features associated with the original user’s Facebook account.

The only way to change the manager account was to factory reset the Oculus Quest.

Quest 2 can have one administrator account and three additional accounts with multi-user capabilities. All accounts can access games and apps owned by the manager account through the Oculus game sharing feature. Accounts can also purchase games and apps, customize your VR experience to your specifications, view game progress and high scores, and use social media integrations if you choose to enable this feature.

Manager accounts share games and apps with secondary accounts, but they don’t work in any other way. When a secondary account purchases a game or app, they only have access to that game or app.

The original admin account that activated the Quest 2 is locked unless a factory reset is performed, but additional accounts can be added and removed at any time. This means that you can use this feature to give your friends a personalized VR tour and then remove their account later.

How to Add Multiple Accounts to Your Oculus Quest 2

With the multi-user account feature, Oculus allows you to add up to three additional accounts above and beyond the original admin account. You can add and remove these accounts freely, so you don’t need to worry about getting locked in or going over a limit.

As this is an experimental feature, the process may be changed or removed at any time. If you don’t see the option, it may not be available for your headset yet, or it may have been removed.

Here’s how to add a second, third, or even fourth account to your Oculus Quest 2:

Put on your Quest 2 and turn it on.

Select Settings (gear icon) from the main navigation bar.

Select Experimental features.

Select the Multiple Accounts and Library Sharing toggle, turning it blue.

When you activate this toggle, a new Accounts option will now appear in the Settings menu.

Select Accounts.

Select OK.

Select Add Account.

Select Skip to allow additional accounts but prevent them from using your apps, or Enable to let additional accounts use your apps.

Following the on-screen prompts, set up a device unlock code to secure your account.

The person you are adding will need to follow the on-screen prompts to log into their Facebook account, adjust the headset fit and lens distance, and set up the Guardian.

How Do Multiple Accounts Work on Quest 2?

Before the introduction of the multi-user feature, each Quest 2 could only have a single account. That means if you wanted to let other people use your Quest 2, or a family or group of friends shared a single headset, every user of the device had to use the original user’s account. There was no per-user customization. Every app and game purchase had to be made by the admin. Individual users couldn’t save game progress or high scores, and all social features linked to the original user’s Facebook account.

The only way to change the admin account was by performing a factory reset on the Oculus Quest.

A Quest 2 can have an admin account and then three additional accounts with the multi-user feature. Each account can access games and apps owned by the admin account through the Oculus game sharing feature. The accounts can also purchase games and apps, customize the VR experience to their specifications, have game progress and high scores, and use social media integration if they choose to enable that feature.

While the admin account shares its games and apps with the secondary accounts, it doesn’t work the other way around. If a secondary account purchases a game or app, only they can access that game or app.

The original admin account that activated the Quest 2 is locked in place unless you perform a factory reset, but the additional accounts can be added and removed at any time. That means you could easily use this feature to give a friend a personalized VR tour and then remove their account afterward.
