Turning off the Guardian System on the Oculus Quest is easy and only takes a few minutes. Once you have everything set up, you can turn the guardian system off by simply clicking a button. Here’s how to do it:

 

Disclaimer: It is NOT recommended to turn off Guardian System and you choose to do so at your own risk.

 

Step 1

 

The first thing we need to do is enable developer mode. Go to this link on the Oculus website: https://dashboard.oculus.com/organizations/create/

Oculus Quest Developer Mode

Enter the name of your game company. If you don’t have one, just enter a fake name like ‘Bob’s Game Studio.’

Tick ‘I understand’ and press ‘Submit.’ Now you should be signed up for developer mode. It’s time to enable this on your phone:

 

 

 

Step 2

 

Go to the Oculus app on your phone and click on Settings > Choose Headset > More Settings > Advanced Settings > Enable developer mode.

Enable developer mode on Oculus phone app Enable Developer Mode on Oculus phone app part 2 Enable developer mode on Oculus phone app part 3 Enable developer mode on Oculus phone app part 4

If you want to revert changes, you can turn off developer mode from here as well.

 

Step 3

 

Now put on your headset and go to Settings > See All > Developer and there should be a switch to disable guardian. Voilah! Guardian System should now be turned off. No more annoying boundaries!

How to Disable the Guardian System on Oculus Quest

 

Keep in mind, every time you turn off your headset, Guardian System will be automatically enabled. There’s no way to change this, unfortunately, but at least it’s very simple to turn off and only takes a few seconds.

 

Troubleshooting

 

Not seeing ‘Developer’ option on your headset?
A simple way to fix this is by restarting your headset. Go onto the Oculus app on your phone, then toggle developer mode on & off. The developer option should be there now.
