Meta with the VR Headset product, create policies that make it easier for users. Because it can be used without having to login to Facebook. Previously, Meta had made a controversial requirement for Meta Quest (VR Headset) users to sign in with a Facebook account. However, it has now been changed with the company’s policy of only requiring a new Meta account, which does not need to be linked to Facebook.
So Meta will start rolling out new accounts next month for existing and new Meta Quest users.
The company emphasizes that Meta accounts are not social media profiles, so they are only for logging into your VR device and being able to manage connected apps. Meta also announced, that future devices will require a Meta account as well. With new Meta account, User must create Meta Horizon profile with username, avatar, profile photo. For use in the company’s vision of the metaverse.
Users still have the option to link your Meta account to Facebook and Instagram, so they can chat with friends on the VR version of Messenger. While Facebook has a rule of one account per person, for Meta accounts it doesn’t really matter how many you have. The new accounts will offer privacy controls, including the option to make your profile private and manually approve follower requests. With users between the ages of 13 and 17 will have a private profile by default. This is an important change for Meta as it continues to place more focus on its vision of the metaverse. But, Meta is said to have scaled back its metaverse ambitions in recent months, after reportedly shutting down several Reality Labs projects and delaying a planned dual-camera smartwatch.
