How do I uninstall or disable the Oculus Quest "Move" app/utility

So I mistakenly agreed to allow this app on my device thinking if I didn't like it, I could just un-install it. Turns out I was really wrong, this app is a menace and lags my beat saber sessions.. etc.. I want to un-install it or disable it, there is no un-install option since its listed as a system utility. There appears to be no disable option either. At this point I was angry enough to just do a factory reset on my headset and guess what, its still there... Any ideas on how to get rid of this terrible piece of software?

Go to "Settings/Experimental Settings/" and turn off "Oculus Move Overlay"

On my v26, Settings/Experimental Settings  does not have an entry for "Oculus Move overlay".
So how do I remove it?

me too 😞

That doesn’t work

I don't think you can uninstall it, but if you go into the app, into settings, there's an option called "Clear all data" or something similar. That clears every kind of information you've ever given it and also stops the tracking/overlay. It worked for me, I hope that helps.

Going to the app Oculus Move Through the App Store if you don't see it in your Apps.Then press overly off. 

I have the same issue with no option to disable in environment

I've turned it all off and it's not off, I really don't want this data shared with Meta, how can this be disabled?

Je ne comprends pas pourquoi on nous force à conserver une application qui ne nous sert à rien.

Cette politique de Oculus me dégoute!

Je n'achèterai plus jamais un Oculus et je dissuaderai quiconque de mon entourage d'en acheter un.
