How to Factory Reset Your Oculus Quest 2

There are two ways that you can factory reset your Quest 2:

  1. Over the headset itself.
  2. Over the phone using the Oculus app.

It is important to note that if you are facing an issue you are trying to fix with a factory reset, you should only use it as a last resort, as all the data on your device will be deleted. You will have to download and install the Oculus Quest 2 updates and all the apps you want to use all over again.
