We need good parental controls
Really in need of Good parental controls like on iPhone.
Sorry but most of you people are just down right wrong to blame oculus/Facebook
They have no obligation to put content restrictions
And go the people who say that they will return / not buy this because of no parental controls should think much harder

so i ave been saving for to oculus quest for about 6 months now and last night it was in my amazon cart all i had to do was get my moms permeation. Well i beat you can guess what she says... "it must have some sort of parietal controls blah blah blah...." I recently form a Reddit post that stated that you can restrict the web browser with your router (it works for me, i have a google WiFi) so that is one problem solved. Also she was rely hesitate on the fact that I (a 15 yr old) can down load any app i want. but i could just show her the apps i down load. In conclusion it would be great if Oculus could just add parental controls maybe now in the headset but maybe in the app.

Definitely need parental controls, a child can install live chat games for free!!!!!!!!

I get that parents need to parent. But the options right now seem to be, buy a VR and realize your kid may wander into a porn sight without you knowing it (I only allow my kid to use his Quest in our living room, but I can’t hear or see what he’s watching, so how would I know??). Or, don’t buy a VR. I think what we’re asking for is simple- a control to eliminate web browser access, and perhaps restrict App Store purchases (my kid always asks before making a purchase, but the porn crap scares me).
Obviously a lot of the responders don’t have kids or they are ********* ***** whose parents ******* hated them.

It's time parents to learn how to parent, instead of blaming the companies. If you can't trust your child to operate what you give them in the parameters that you set for them, then you have failed at parenting
Good parenting and bad parenting doesn’t change whether a child is going to access adult mature visual content. Every child has a natural drawn curiosity. We were all kids once, trying a cigarette or alcohol or getting to watch **** doesn’t mean I was a bad child to begin with. My sons father had bought my son an Oculus, I have no control what his father buys him, but I am too concern about having some parental control on this device. I believe Oculus would benefit from it, more buyers, more profit, less returns.
*******. Oculus needs to stay where it is and keep freedom. iPhone was made by Apple. Oculus was made by Facebook. These clown parents are crying because their child found ****. Or they can't set parental controls. Well, why don't you try to raise your child right and just trust them.
My son was so excited to use his Christmas money to buy an oculus, but we truly care about the content that he is exposed to and have decided that with no parental controls, it is just not an acceptable purchase. I hope Oculus will consider this as an important feature to add in the future.
Didn’t purchase because of this issue. I think that Oculus, by saying they recommend their devices for 13+, are trying to avoid this issue. However, most parents will agree that teens should have some content restriction (porn & extreme violence). My son wanted this so much this Christmas, but I have to be “bad mom” and say no until this is addressed.
Can’t keep this without parental controls. They are so easy to do. Returning to Best Buy

Even. Simple parental controls. Like time restriction, would be a good start.
I was about to buy one but the access to everything outside of gaming is just too risky without parental controls.
Come on guys... let's keep our teen's safe!
Give us some tools here because the tech is cutting edge but a blessing that in the hands of a minor can be a curse.
My son wants an Occulus Quest for Christmas. I WILL NOT BUY IT IF THERE ARE NO PARENTAL CONTROLS.
I am shocked that there are not simple parental controls available, and the statement Occulus/Facebook is making by NOT addressing this speaks VOLUMES.
Get it together, or fail.
We will be taking the Quest away from our young son who has parental controls on all his devices except this one. Children try to find ways to get content they are not supposed to and Oculus has now made this simple. If I could return it I would. I may try and sell it and I will be sure to tell all of our friends this concern before they make the same mistake.
Yes please. I can't let my family play without me being in the room the entire time because of this.
What is with no Parental controls! If you put them on you would make more money! I know kids in my neighborhood who were going to buy an oculus quest then didn't because there is no such thing as parental controls. There was a lady at best buy from oculus running demos and assured us there were parental controls. now my parents are making me get rid of my quest, thanks A LOT!
No parental control is a deal breaker for me. I'd like to be able to not expose my kid to porn and crazy chat room antics. When I saw this was made by Facebook, I instantly became leery but to find out there is no way to restrict certain things or purchase, absolutely makes me rethink considering purchasing the quest.

Oculus fucking sucks as does facebook. This is very easy for them to do as Google and iphone has. I bet their filters are picking up the " oculus parent company fucking blows." Let 10 year olds see three dicks in a chicks ass or someones face blown off. All they care about is capturing your child's every move and desire. Too bad as the quest itself is great but wont be under the tree this year.
Your target audience is 12-17 year old age group and you're providing open internet browsers without any restrictions in a very isolated and private environment. I didn't do enough research before we purchased and I found out the hard way. If you're going to provide browsers, need the ability to restrict usage for a product whose main users are teens. Otherwise, don't provide them at all. I am certain parents have no idea this is happening, just like I didn't.
