Just an additional note which may help people to make this
fix work. I found I had to delete both the Oculus app and the Facebook app from
my phone after I had deleted the Oculus account which I wanted to get rid of. I
then reinstalled both these apps before beginning the merge process.
Waited a week for Oculus to fix my issue of wrong Oculus account tied to Facebook account. Library was empty. Found a solution on Reddit from iMason420.
Using a computer web-browser, Not The App, go to the Oculus website and login with the inncorrect account.
Make sure this is the Oculus account YOU DO NOT WANT, because you are going to delete that account:
Go to Profile, Privacy Center, Delete Your Oculus Data
You will be brought to the Facebook site to complete the deletion.
Now you can log in to the Oculus App with your good Oculus account and link it to Facebook. Note: I had to delete the Oculus App cache.
Dammit I tried the fix and I thought I almost had it but alas it has not worked.
- Deleted the rogue oculus account that was linked to my Facebook through PC. How was it even created? I've never used oculus using my Facebook. It says its on 30 day suspension grace period now.
- Then deleted Instagram app, Facebook app and Oculus app off my phone and logged Facebook out of internet.
- Then just reinstalled Oculus app ,and then when I logged into my actual oculus account and start the merge process I manage to get the oculus app to switch over to the internet version of Facebook and ask for me to log in.
Got excited at this point
- Logged into Facebook, but then when it says Oculus would like access to your Facebook account, "continue with xxx my name xxx"
It goes to a blank page with oculus in the title. and thats it
Once I install the Facebook app again, and try the merge, it just does that thing where it loops back.
Maybe once the 30 day period has ended and the rogue oculus data has been deleted, it might work.
