Deleting Oculus 1

MrCrowsy
Level 2

I have had the Oculus for what seems like years but haven't used it for months now, ever since they first spouted the forced use of Facebook that was coming. Lost interest after that as did the family.

Could someone help with resetting the Oculus 1 so it is at factory settings and my data is off there. I think I know how to delete my account, via profile?, but does this include everything?

I have seen a few posts mentioning you will be able to sign into Oculus without facebook/Meta. I assume it will not affect the Quest 1 or 2 for that matter or will it?

Thank you for the information. I really enjoyed my time on the Quest and as soon as the need for Facebook is not a requirement or it's namesake I'll be back.
