Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta has announced the launch of Meta Horizon Profiles, which will function as the platform’s account logins and serve to replace its co-use of Facebook and Instagram account credentials. What this means is that new and old users will be required to make an all-new Meta Horizon Profile if they would like to use the platform or any of its virtual reality devices.
According to the company, the decision to opt for a new login and profile system was in response to users’ concerns around privacy. However, users will still be able to login into Meta using their Facebook or Instagram accounts from now until January 1, 2023. In addition, Meta Horizon Profiles will completely replace the formerly used Occulus accounts.
