Comfort Ratings

All games and apps on the Meta Quest Store (except those in App Lab) come with Comfort Ratings ranging from Comfortable to Intense, which can help you identify the content that’s best suited to your preferences and needs. People new to VR should generally start on the more Comfortable side of the spectrum as they learn what they like when moving and looking around in VR. You can find the Comfort Rating for a given game or app on its store listing page.

Designed for Age 13+

Meta Quest devices are not toys and must not be used by children under 13. Younger children have greater risks of injury and adverse effects than older users. While we know that children under 13 may want to use Meta Quest devices, we do not permit them to create accounts or use Meta Quest devices.

Meta Quest Store content is rated through the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC), a globally streamlined age classification process for digital games and mobile apps. Each app on the Meta Quest Store and App Lab shows these content ratings, so you’ll know what type of experience you or your teen (ages 13-17) selects. This also makes it easier for developers to get age and content ratings for their apps from multiple territories simultaneously, and gives the people who use those apps a consistent set of familiar and trusted ratings that reflect their own cultural norms regarding content and age-appropriateness. By default, we automatically block teens 13+ from downloading or purchasing IARC rated age-inappropriate apps in the Quest store, while giving parents the ability to override those blocks on a case-by-case basis. For further information on how parents can help their teens navigate VR, please visit our Parent Education Hub.

Health & Safety Warnings

To have the best experience in VR, it’s important to know how to set up your Meta Quest device and your play area, and how to prepare yourself for VR. You should read and follow the health and safety information about your Meta Quest device, and make sure that you share it with anyone you let use your Meta Quest device. Following and sharing this information will promote safe experiences for you and your friends.

Notice someone who isn’t following the Code of Conduct for Virtual Experiences?

If you’re new to Meta VR devices or have previously merged your Oculus account with your Facebook account, you’ll need to create a Meta account and an accompanying Meta Horizon profile. If you’ve been logging into your VR device with your Oculus account, you can continue to do so until January 1, 2023, at which point you’ll need to create a Meta account and Meta Horizon profile to continue using your Meta VR device. You have the option to add your Facebook and/or Instagram account to the same Accounts Center as your Meta account, which unlocks connected experiences in VR.
