Latest Oculus Quest 2 Update Could Keep Your Teen Safe in the Metaverse

The latest update for Meta Quest 2 (formerly Oculus Quest 2) is here and it adds even more parental control settings so you can keep the youngest users of your VR headset safe online.

June v41 update (opens in new tab) introduced several new parental features such as blocking specific apps, introducing purchase controls and notifications, as well as the ability for a parent account to see their child’s Oculus friends list. Now the latest v42 update (opens in new tab) further expands these settings into better controls for social functions.

This includes limiting a child’s account’s ability to join groups, chatting on Quest using Messenger in VR, and even using the share feature to send posts to Facebook. Additionally, your Quest 2 will now give children a birthday message as they grow up, alerting them to age-restricted activities that have been automatically unlocked now that they are older.
