@tintotty.543040 If you're having an issue with the 8 digit code, see if you can input that code in the Meta.com/device site. If not, it could be part of the ongoing issue we've been seeing. 

 

If that doesn't work, make sure you're logged into the right account on https://secure.oculus.com/my/devices/

 

If you are not on the right account, go to auth.meta.com/settings and log out. Just login to the right account afterwards and that should be fine. 

 

Again, if that doesn't work this would just be part of an ongoing issue we've been looking into for the past week or so.

😀I think you should uninstall Meta App and install it again. That worked for me.

How does such a large platform have an on going problem I can't log in with a refurbished device meta sent me which I'm pissed I had a brand new one one month broke!!!! . My son cant play I been through 10 people Noone can help how long is this going to go on for???? This is ridiculous this is Facebook not some random company. The amount of money we pay for this it shouldn't happen. If this was Apple one day it's fixed I'm so confused. I changed my emails made sure everything is good and still can't pair!!!!!! 

I am having the exact same issue. It is incredibly frustrating. I don’t think I have ever had so much difficulty in getting a device to work. And I’ve dealt with technology for decades. Why does this have to be so hard? It is simple authentication and yet- it is tighter than Fort Knox.
