How to Turn Off the Guardian System on the Oculus Quest
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.
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:
Go to the Oculus app on your phone and click on Settings > Choose Headset > More Settings > Advanced Settings > Enable developer mode.
If you want to revert changes, you can turn off developer mode from here as well.
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!
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.
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.
