Meta Officially Rolls Out Its New Metaverse ID System

August 26, 2022

Here are the Meta Horizon profiles and Meta accounts!

You will soon have the chance to create a Meta account and a Meta Horizon profile if you don’t have the chance to do so right now because this upgrade will be implemented gradually over the globe. You now have more freedom and control thanks to our updated Meta account structure, which also gives you the option to decide whether or not Facebook and/or Instagram will be a part of your VR experience and other surfaces where you use your Meta Horizon profile.

New to Meta VR

You can create a Meta account using your email address, Facebook account, or Instagram account if you’re new to Meta VR devices. You’ll receive a code when you first put on your headset that you may use to pair it with the Oculus mobile app. You can then use Facebook or Instagram to continue, or you can use your email address to register for a Meta account.

If you create your Meta account using a Facebook or Instagram account, both that social media account and your Meta account will be added to the same Accounts Center, allowing you to enjoy integrated experiences such as discovering Instagram followers to play with in VR and using Messenger in VR.

Everything About The Meta Update

The formal launch of Meta accounts and Meta Horizon Profiles has been announced by Meta, formerly Facebook. Both “accounts” will be used instead of the personal social media account logins—Facebook and Instagram—that were previously necessary to use the company’s virtual reality (VR) system throughout the global rollout, which will be phased.

To sign in and use the metaverse, both new and seasoned Meta VR device users must create a Meta account. The company is giving up the archaic technique of logging on after complaints about privacy concerns arose while using personal social network accounts.

According to the business, people can still create a Meta account using their Facebook and Instagram identities. The Accounts Center, the focal point for interconnected experiences across Meta, will connect users who choose to create their Meta accounts through their social media accounts.

Customers who already use an Oculus login may continue to use it until January 1, 2023, even though the firm wants users to connect using a Meta account. Once clients transfer over, the business assures them that they will “still have access to all of your prior VR purchases and downloads.”

The old Oculus account will be replaced by a “Meta Horizon Profile” in addition to the Meta account. The profile will act as the focal point for all avatar-related activities and as Facebook for the metaverse. The company will now refer to them as “Followers” on the Horizon World platform, giving it an Instagram-like feel. Previously known as “Friends” in the Metaverse.

Although privacy is still extremely important to the internet behemoth, meta accounts will provide users with three choices for who can connect to and access their accounts: “Open to Everyone,” “Friends and Family,” and “Solo.” Each of these options has different implications. If a user doesn’t change their privacy preferences, they are automatically set to “Friends and Family.” The ability to change a user’s Horizon profile to private will also force them to accept follower requests.
