Oculus VR headsets will soon require a Facebook account

From the moment Facebook acquired Oculus in 2014 we’ve been expecting this news, and it’s finally come. Starting in October, you’ll need a Facebook account to log into Oculus virtual reality devices, including all Oculus hardware being released in the future, the company announced on Tuesday.

Things are a little more complicated for people who have already purchased an Oculus device and created an Oculus profile for it.

If you decline, you’ll be able to continue using your standalone Oculus profile until January 1, 2023, at which point the account will be retired.
