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.
I will never buy another Oculus/facebook product if you don't remove this requirement. I don't care how awesome the hardware is.
what I want to use is oculus, not facebook
Even when someone can forgive enough to use honest information to create a FB account just for playing Quest 2.
BAM AI just get a tantrum and ban the honest user since when someone don't care for SNS function and just play their VR, they WONT use Facebook normally which automatically put them in suspicious activity zone.
If you gonna pull this unreasonably move for squeesh some money, at least MAKE IT WORK.
OFC the easiest way to end this is just to let the Oculus account have its comeback.
Since the RiftS/Quest1 users still keep their Oculus account until 2023 (If not sync to FB account)
This mean the Oculus account system itself is still there, working as intended.
Use things that are already there, how hard that will be?
yeah, facebook login is dumb af

plz remove Facebook Login .
Surely FB want to make money and by doing the mandatory FB requirements you are driving people away. I know 3 people myself who want a Q2 but don't have or want a FB account. You are missing out on sales due to this decision
I have decided to move away from oculus and will be ordered a Valve Index due to this move. Their desire to move away from gamers and focus on more casual players, as well as forced Facebook integration for those of us with the Rift or Rift S, just feels like an added slap in the face.
I had a preorder going but cancelled it because of this. I will never have a Facebook account but I would like to use the Quest2. It's beyond dumb.
It's just wrong for someone to be banned or blocked from use of the Oculus ecosystem for some issue on a social media service they didn't even want to use.
I pre-created a facebook account for OculusQuest2 but it was banned the next day. The account has now been restored, but we can't tie up store property under such an untrustworthy regime, and OculusQuest2 has been cancelled!
My facebook account was frozen and has not been recovered yet. I registered under my real name and there is nothing wrong with it.
I'd like to separate my facebook account from my Oculus account.
It's unacceptable that this headset can be made a paperweight by a broken data-sniffing AI that thinks you're suspicious and bans the account that you HAVE to use to play.

There are many VR enthusiasts who are not willing to join the Facebook community.
Forcing them to participate is detrimental to each other's interests.
Active fraud exclusion is necessary to maintain a healthy Facebook community.
However, as a result, even users without problems will not be able to use the store service with peace of mind.

You can't recommend a product to a friend for a service that you don't know when it will be banned. If you simply don't need to log in to Facebook, it's recommended to all your friends.

My friend's account has been banned...
I had imagined that my Facebook account would do what I could tolerate, although I was somewhat dissatisfied with it, but the reality was a lot more worse than I had imagined.
