Facebook, now branded as Meta, is notorious for gathering as much user information as possible. Regardless of how anyone feels about it personally, if you want to play on an Oculus Quest 2, you have to use your Facebook account to do it.

There is at least one way to easily hold onto your data, though. Rather than using the default settings for their VR browser, you can simply enter private mode!

Here’s our simple-to-follow guide to activating private mode browsing on the Oculus Quest 2!

  • Information entered into forms
