Alow multiple usernames in quest with a single facebook account, or allow multiple facebook accounts.
Owning multiple headsets is problematic with the Facebook required logins. My 3 headsets are essentially useless for multiplayer now. I realize Facebook's TOS only allow one login, so i propose to allow Oculus to create multiple usernames. It already allows usernames so you don't have to have your real life friends list combined with your gaming friends list. I'm proposing to just add multiple usernames to the oculus side of the account so you don't run into duplicate username issues in multiplayer.
Here's an excerpt of my talks with oculus support.

Thanks for the reply, but that doesn’t sound like an acceptable solution. If one of my “trusted” friends loses access to their facebook account due to spouting political nonsense or a myriad of other issues, I’ll lose access to my device. Also if they change their facebook password, I’ll lose access to my oculus account for that headset. The real names don’t show under the current system anyways in oculus since you can choose a username. There has to be another way that I can still use my headsets multiplayer without risking other peoples accounts by sharing passwords. Especially considering I didn’t have this issue till facebook accounts became required.

Thank you for reaching out with that information. I would be happy to assist you further while my co-worker is out of the office.
The best option in a situation like this would be to tie your Oculus account with a trusted friend or family members Facebook. That way you can have multiple accounts without breaking the Community Standards as they are real people with real names.
I hope this helps, please reach out if you have any further questions.
All the best,

Family wants to try it, but they need to be able to start from the beginning. Sharing one account stinks. Even if you help them learn, they are stuck trying to beat existing high scores. Plus they could accidentally post to main users account or do something wrong and get primary user banned. I can't afford 5 Oculus Quest 2's in my house. This is showing the greed of the companies...
