However, if you are already logged into Facebook on your browser, you can just go ahead and press “continue,” and then it should automatically log you into your Oculus account. However, if you are not already logged into your Facebook account in your web browser, you must log into your Facebook account on the Oculus homepage to access your Oculus account.

After you click “Edit,” a spot will be made available for you to update your username. It will prompt you for your Oculus account pin after you have changed your username as a security measure. A verification email will be sent to the email address you have associated with your Oculus account once you have completed all the required modifications to your username. After that, all you have to do is open your email and click the link Oculus sent you so they can confirm this is really your Oculus account once more.

Creating an Oculus account for your Oculus Quest 2 is a very simple process, and I’m going to show you how to do it.

The first thing you will want to do when setting up or creating your Oculus account is to go to oculus.com, which should take you directly to store.facebook.com. If you already have a Facebook account and log into your web browser, you should see a small profile picture icon at the top right-hand corner of your screen.

You’re going to have to click on it, and from there, it should take you to the Facebook Oculus profile page, and from there you should see a message at the top of your screen saying you should visit the Oculus profile page, or you can scroll down until you see “Oculus settings.” Then you can click on it, and it should take you to the Oculus profile page, where you can just log in from Facebook.

If you don’t already have a Facebook account, you can easily set one up, which shouldn’t take long. All you have to do is click the “Facebook account option” sign-up button below the login. Creating a Facebook account is completely free, and you do not need to enter any credit card or debit card information.

So, once you’ve created or have an existing Facebook account, the next step is simple: simply click on “Log in using your Facebook account.” After logging in with your Facebook account, you will see a message on the screen asking if you want to keep using your Facebook username. When you click it, you should be taken to a new page that says, “Welcome to Oculus.” Then you should scroll down until you see a button that says “Continue as a new Oculus user.” Once you click on “continue,” it will take you to another page to set up your VR profile.

From there, you can create a username that you like, click on “continue,” and then you can create an Oculus PIN that you are comfortable with and can remember. It should then ask you to confirm your email address, and then you can go ahead and click on “continue.” Once that is done, you should have created your Oculus account.

You should click on it so that it can take you to another page, which will require you to input your registered email address so that you can reset your password.

After you have written down your email address, you can click on “reset password,” and it should send you an email with a reset pin that you can write down in the password section for your Oculus account, and you should be able to log into your account.
