How to remotely wipe all data from a lost Meta / Oculus Quest

Remote Wipe gives you the ability to delete all data from your Meta / Oculus Quest, even if you no longer have access to it.

If you have lost your Meta / Oculus Quest and are wondering how to remotely wipe data from it without physically accessing the headset, then below we will tell you about it.

Due to the mandatory Facebook login on Oculus headsets, someone using your Oculus Quest will have limited access to your personal information. If you lose your Oculus Quest or it gets stolen, you want to make sure no one can access your Facebook news feed or message your friends using Facebook Messenger.

To do this, you can remotely erase the headset.

What is Remote Wipe?

Remote Wipe is a security guarantee that gives you the ability to remove all data from your Oculus Quest even if you no longer have physical access to it. All personal information and data will be deleted from the device, and the factory state will be restored. Nothing else will be attached to it – the headset will be reset to the state of a completely new device.

This is a last resort, so make sure you’re ready to erase everything – there’s no turning back.

How to Remotely Wipe Meta / Oculus Quest

  1. First, visit secure.oculus.com/my/devices/ on your computer or phone.
  2. Then, if you haven’t already, sign in to the Meta/Oculus account associated with your headset.
  3. Find the Oculus Quest headset you want to reset in the device list and click “Delete Device Data“.

You may need to go through a verification step to confirm that it is indeed you. The system will then process the request.

The next time the Quest headset connects to the network, it will erase all personal data and return to factory settings. After that, it will no longer appear in the My Devices tab as it will no longer be associated with your account.
