The “From Facebook” part of virtual reality unit Oculus From Facebook will soon be emphasized a bit more when it come to logging into its VR devices.

Starting in October, people using Oculus devices for the first time must login with a Facebook account.

Existing users can choose to login with Facebook and merge their Oculus and Facebook accounts, or continue using their Oculus accounts until Jan. 1, 2023, at which point support for Oculus accounts will cease.

Oculus said in a blog post that people can continue using their devices after Jan.
