Remove Mandatory Facebook Login!
Remove Mandatory Facebook login in order to accept friend requests and use the Oculus app. I have never had Facebook nor do i want it. I just want to play vr. I don’t want to have to have facebook to enjoy my 500$ Virtual Reality Headset with my friends.
Interesting that they haven't placed this in the Declined status in spite of the fact that they told us to ... with this requirement.

I'd be far less annoyed with a required facebook login if facebook would back off on the policies forcing people to use their real name. I am not being doxed on the internet just to play VR games not dealing with that.
Update: saw the new ToS it seems facebook actually listened about the real name crap unless I missed something it seems they finally are giving users who use fake names so long as they aren't harassing some leeway.
Update again: nope was wrong it's still there...

Sold My Rift S. You lost my trust, Oculus. For good. I never thought FB would actually force us onto it and people did warn, I should have listened to them.

Came here to make this post myself fully agree this was a disgusting move already bought my quest so I'm good for 2 years but after that it may aswell be a paper weight I won't be picking up the quest 2 and will be looking for an alternative from another manufacturer unless this is reversed
William Taubenheim commented
im not buying a quest unless this is removed
I don't want it!
I have a Facebook account just to accept friend requests, and I despise it. It'd be great if I could just delete it. The fact that you're forcing a Facebook account to use an Oculus headset is disgusting. God I wish someone else bought Oculus and not you pieces of sh*t. F*ck you, Facebook.

I quit using Facebook five years ago because of all the unneeded drama. No way I'm going back. I use VR to escape the real world, not get further immersed in it. Bad move, Oculus. I will no longer buy any Oculus products or games in the store. I'll move on to a competitor and advise everybody else to also.
i don’t want a facebook account cuz i’m not a 60 year old grandma who’s got nothing better to do with her life

Don't have a Facebook account don't want it.
Bad move FB and Oculus!
This is absolutely unfair to the community!
Don't you remember promising us "The VR and Oculus Community" that you would never force Facebook login!
You lied to us, We feel betrayed!
I've supported you since day one!
I was one of those DK2 users who saw the potential in you're Wonderful creations!
I even went out and bought two Quests and a Rift S even though I was aware you were bought up by Facebook A company I'm against!
And this how you show you're respect and love to you're users and the rest of the VR community!?
By forcing new and old users to use FB Login!
Not only that but you refuse to even support the Rift S user base!
And to add the cherry on top of this disgusting cake you've made you finally decided to give us multi user login if we use FB!
Facebook won't even allow me to make an account under my Virtual Identity, Witch I already struggle to even think of giving them that!
If you don't fix this I'll be switching to another platform by 2023...
BTW Valve was right, The Cake is a lie... I guess I'll be buying an index...
Mine is already a paperweight, will not be spending another second or dime until they announce they will not require facebook logins. Already told 2 people this week looking at vr look elsewhere.
If they go through with this, I can't wait to have a $400 paper weight.
I'd rather not they have access to what equates to a camera in my room, while also collecting all my data and using it to target potential ads IN A $400 HEADSET.
If anyone starts a class-action suit can they tell me? kthxbye

I'd rather have it COMPLETELY optional, but having it being mandatory? No dice, I'm starting to think that buying a quest was a mistake.
Its a bad move, i too will be refunding the games i purchased through them if they don't work. Luckily Steam works very well with Oculus and most of my purchases have been through that plus, I can connect to friends through that.
This move by Oculus/Facebook should be illegal since they sold me a device on false pretenses. Very upset and the response from customer support proves they don't care about their customers even a little.
Absolutely ridiculous. Everyday theres another reason to hate Facebook. The day I have to link a FB account is the last day I use my $$$$ Oculus.
Dustin Grant commented
It's a predator move to force numbers on your failing social network platform Facebook will fade while oculus will remain if your smart Facebook you will keep em sepparate.
If they move forward with this I will be pursuing a refund on my purchases. At the very least I will spend my free time clogging up their support lines.
