Trying to get my Gear VR up and running on Samsung S9. Occlusion VR app says Continue with Facebook, but then says Logging into Facebook from embedded browser disabled. Tried logging into Occulus, but it says the account has been linked to Facebook -- so I can't log in either place. Any ideas?
Hey CptnShiny! We understand you're having trouble logging in to your Facebook/Oculus account. This is because Facebook blocks out embedded browsers due to their risk assessment. To try and work around this we suggest enabling two-factor authentication. To enable this:
We hope this helps resolve your login issue. 👍😊
literally how is this POSSIBLY supposed to help?
I did try it. it did absolutely nothing to help, but how would it??
y'all really just don't care, do you? we bought the device and now we're on our own.
obviously this is a reply to OculusSupport but for some reason it posted like this.
was having the same problem... i fixed it this morning.... THERE ARE 2 OCULUS APPS.... the one you download on Google play IS NOT the app you use for the Geer VR...
I was having same issues.. when I put my phone into the Geer headset, I'd get a message saying that I'm not logged into the Oculus App.. when I logged into the (wrong) oculus app I'd get a message saying imbedded browser was disabled...
Anyways, I found an article that pointed out there is a Geer Oculus app that downloads when you put your phone into the headset.... I found that app on my phone this morning, logged into it with my FB creds and... WOOOOHOOOO..... my Geer VR is back in action!!!
