Latest Oculus Quest 2 update could keep your teen safe in the metaverse

The Meta Quest 2’s (formerly Oculus Quest 2) latest update is here and it adds even more parental control settings so that you can keep your VR headset’s younger users safe online.

June’s v41 update (opens in new tab) introduced several new parental features like 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 putting limits on a child’s account’s ability to join parties, chat on the Quest using Messenger in VR, and even use the share feature to send posts to Facebook. On top of this, your Quest 2 will now give children a birthday message as they grow up, alerting them about previously age-restricted activities that have unlocked automatically now that they’re older.
