Parental controls?

Hi, 
I'm very excited regarding with launch of Oculus Go but I'm wondering are there any plans future plans to implement parental controls in Oculus Go?
It would be nice if there would be an option to set global pin code preventing from launching any app/game/web-site ('quick fix').
Or more advanced options like - blocking installing new content, launching browser, allowing specific apps only, preventing from purchasing and so on ('long term').

Thanks in advance.
Michal

    I would like to use my Oculus Go with the kids at the STEM summer camp I teach at, so I need these features too. Although for me, the screen casting feature that is eventually supposed to come out would be even better, because then I can just watch them and the other kids could watch as well.

    I began a discussion about children (13 to 18) in VR and what can be done to encourage them to use it and at the same time keep them safe - please add your voice.

    So, you can set a lock pattern, so no one except you can unlock the device. Additionally, you will need to set a PIN number used in order to make purchases. This would stop unauthorized purchases from the store, though anyone with the headset could play installed games or download free titles.

    How do I set a lock pattern, so that no one except me can unlock the device? And how would I be able to filter content during school-use?

    So I have a young son who used the oculus go Web browser to watch porn. I couldn't find any safety features to prevent this from happening  and so I'm am forced to get rid of the oculus go. Any word on if, or when oculus will be adding any Web browser Protection?

    How do we prevent kids from accessing porn or other wed sites from the international Web browser? What safety measures are in place for that?

    Sometime Oculus Go owners allow friends and family to use our Oculus Go headsets, therefore there should be a security option in place where the Oculus Go owner can set a pin for whichever apps and web browsers we choose. If we don't want others accessing our Facebook account and using our web browsers within Oculus Go to visit sites we find inappropriate,  we should have the option to block that from happening. Having a pin number for certain apps & web browsers or two factor authentication to access the web browser & our Facebook account would solve this problem.
