Login problems for Meta and old Oculus account - massive frustrating loop for hours

Level 2

I cannot login into my old Oculus account. I get "something went wrong" error. I also notice that I get a 6 digit code emailed to me every time however there is no place in the oculus web portal, or the iPhone app to put this code in.

I tried changing password and same problem.

If I try to make a Meta account, it asks me to login into my Oculus account to preserve my apps, but I get the same error. I have to make this account just to post which is a pain.

Also - the meta account page uses cookies of some sort so if another Facebook account has logged into the browser you can only make a meta account with that profile, even if you logout etc.

PS - I couldnt even post this message due to an ERRONEOUS "invalid HTML" error.
