Owners of Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2 can now share their headsets with up to three other accounts, thanks to the official multi-user support introduced by Oculus last month. This means that users can share their headset without worrying about other users interfering with their in-game progression and achievements. Additionally, Oculus has introduced app sharing, which allows anyone with secondary login access to the entire catalog of purchased games and apps.
If you have access to these new updates, congratulations! In this article, we will guide you through how to set up multi-user support on your headset and app sharing.
To begin, head to the settings on your Oculus Quest or Oculus Quest 2 headset and select the “Experimental Features” tab. Next, scroll down and turn on “Multiple Accounts” and “Library Sharing.”
Then, go back to the settings area and select the “Accounts” tab. Click “Add Accounts” to connect a second, third, or fourth login. Those looking to access the headset will need to have their own Facebook login. If you’d like, you can turn on app sharing to allow other accounts access to your paid library.
If you’re concerned about others accessing your account without permission, you can set up a standard security pattern lock similar to the ones featured on modern smartphones. Simply head to the device tab in your settings and turn on “Unlock Pattern.” You’ll then be asked to create a custom pattern using the 8-point system provided.
You can also choose to leave app sharing off, which will restrict access to your paid games and apps while still allowing secondary logins to purchase their own content. Games and apps purchased via a secondary account cannot, however, be shared with primary account owners.
App sharing will not affect your saved games stats or any other personal data. And that’s it! You can now make the most of your Oculus Quest or Quest 2 headset by sharing it with multiple users.
