How to Add Multiple Accounts and Set Up a Parent-Supervised Account on the Quest 3 – Video

Estimated read time 4 min read

Speaker 1: Today I’m going to show you how to add multiple users to your Medi Quest three headset and set up a parent managed account. Subscribe to CNET for more how-to videos. Adding multiple accounts on the Quest three is pretty simple, and if you have small kids that want to play, you’re going to want to have some parental controls in place, like time limits and locks apps. Your main account is the admin, and then you can have three additional accounts on the Quest three and Quest two. The Advent account can share all the purchase apps on the headset with all the users [00:00:30] to share your apps, put on the Quest three headset and pull up the universal menu by pressing the menu button on the right hand controller and select settings.

Speaker 1: Then select accounts and toggle on the app sharing switch. Now you’re sharing all your purchase apps from the MedQuest store. It’s worth noting that you cannot share apps across different headsets, so I can’t share my apps with multiple users on my MedQuest two. If I have toggled this switch on in the Meta Quest three, you can switch it off and go back to the Quest two [00:01:00] if needed. Now you need to create meta accounts for each user. As you can see, I already created accounts for my kids. If you don’t have a meta account, you can create one or log in with your Facebook account and merge your account. For this video, I’ll set up a new account for a fictional child so you can see how the process works. Create a new meta account for your child by going to the Meta Family Center and log into your existing meta account.

Speaker 1: Next, select create an account for a child from the auctions available and follow the onscreen instructions. [00:01:30] You can also invite a teen to create an account on the headset. Your child must be between 10 and 12 years old to have a parent supervised meta account. This age limit varies by region. The child account has privacy and security features on by default, and they cannot be changed until the child turns 13. Once a child turns 13, there will be automatically opted into a supervised account, but the parent and teen can decide whether to keep the supervised account and turn off certain features, their name, birthdate, and an email address are required [00:02:00] to complete the setup process. I’ve dropped a link in the description of this video to Meta’s page for creating a child or teen account in the Meta Family Center and for converting an existing meta account to a child’s account.

Speaker 1: If you need more information, you can also set up and manage a parent supervised account in the Meta app. If you prefer doing everything on mobile, you can access parental supervision settings, including daily time limits, scheduled breaks, and locked apps from the Meta app. Now that the child account is set up, you can add a user to the headset, put [00:02:30] the headset back on and go to settings and select accounts again, and then select Add account. You will be prompted to create an unlock pattern for your headset if you don’t already have one set up before adding additional accounts. You’ll now see an eight digit code in your headset on your mobile phone. Go to meded.com/device and enter the eight digit code. Once the new user account is added, you can add your name and create a username that will be visible to other Quest players. The new account will be added and your headset will [00:03:00] begin to walk your child through all the safety features on the ME Quest three

Speaker 2: Until the headset is comfortable and text on the screen is clear

Speaker 1: To change users. Select the user profile icon on the far left-hand side of the universal menu and then select Switch user on the top right. So that’s how to add a new account to have multiple users sharing one headset.
