Enable or disable social features for Meta Quest for Business devices

Admins can enable or disable social features and interactions for devices in Individual Mode.
The below instructions cover how to enable or disable social features for devices that are managed in Admin Center. If you manage devices with either Ivanti Neurons for MDM or Workspace ONE UEM, then you can download and use Meta’s OEMConfigs APK to manage access to social features.
What are social features?
Social features include:
  • Horizon Worlds app
  • People App
  • Parties
  • Messaging
  • Searching for people in or outside of your organization
If social features are enabled, then people can interact with people in and outside your organization.
If social features are disabled, then people will not have access to social features. If a managed Meta account has existing followers, these will be retained but interaction with people will be blocked. If someone logs into the Quest Link PC app with their managed Meta account, then they won’t be able to access social features in the app either.
Enabling or disabling social features only applies to first-party features and interactions. Third-party social features and interactions can be managed by changing permissions for access to the Meta Quest Store.
Even if social features are disabled, people will still be able to use third-party apps that have multiplayer experiences and report other users in those apps.
