If you’ve connected your account with Facebook and Oculus decide to delete your account Facebook, your purchase of Oculus will also be lost.
Although to use the Quest 2 requires account Facebook, the company confirms that if you are the owner of the original Quest, Rift or Rift’s, not purchasing another headset Oculus and long refrained from linking your accounts — you can still delete the unlinked my Facebook account and it not affect your in-store purchase of Oculus. Starting in 2023, Facebook will no longer support Oculus account, and details about how exactly this will work is still unknown.
“We will update existing users who prefer not to log in with your account Facebook, when we approach the termination of support accounts Oculus in 2023,” wrote a Facebook representative.
Facebook announced in August that for future headsets will need your real identity, but a tweet this week illustrated the policy of purchase the screen on which the text appears Facebook when you try to delete your account.
The text reads as follows:
Your account will be deleted forever.
When you delete your account Facebook, you will not be able to obtain content or information that you have shared on Facebook. Your Messenger and your messages will also be deleted.
Deleting your account Facebook also will delete your information Oculus.
This includes your purchase items and achievements. You won’t be able to return any applications and will lose all existing store credit.

Although the Quest 2 seems sold much faster than the original Facebook was faced with some unhappy clients, who described their shopping Quest 2 as a “paperweight” because of problems with login to Facebook, and some buyers of the strap of the Oculus Quest 2 Strap Elite say that their product just fell apart.
Conversations around the policy of removing accounts continue to evolve, and recently published the report of the Subcommittee of the U.S. house of representatives, in which, it seemed, was proposed to Congress to consider a policy similar to the policy of Facebook, as anti-competitive.
On web site support Oculus says that the refund for the order Quest 2 is carried out in a period of 30 days from the moment of sending.
