Meta has officially announced an innovative login system for users to access Horizon Worlds, Meta’s recently launched metaverse.
According to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the new authentication login system will be safer than the previous one. Until now, users would enter Horizon Worlds through their Facebook or Instagram accounts.
From now on, every new and existing user will have to create a Meta Account, which will be used exclusively for Horizon Worlds. Meta Accounts are created with an e-mail or Facebook and Instagram profile. Once a Meta Account is created, users can set up their Meta Horizon profiles by creating a username and selecting a profile picture.
The new login change is due to recent user complaints and concerns regarding data security, which Meta is known for disrespecting.
Oculus, Meta’s VR headset brand, presented Meta Horizon profiles in an official release:
“Our new Meta account structure gives you more flexibility and control, letting you choose how you do and don’t show up—and whether Facebook and/or Instagram is part of your experience in VR and other surfaces where you use your Meta Horizon profile.”
There will be three options for the account’s privacy settings: open to everybody; friends and family; and solo. There will be a private mode for the profile, which means that users can review and approve follower requests. Users between the ages of 13 and 17 will have their profile set to private by default.
After these steps, users can create their avatars and start their virtual journey in Horizon Worlds.

With the company’s recent rebrand and a new focus on becoming metaverse-orientated, Horizon Worlds is one of Zuckerberg’s biggest projects.
In recent months, Meta has been experiencing financial troubles. The company’s stock price and cash flow are on a downward trend. Meta’s VR division, Reality Labs, posted considerable losses in the second quarter of 2022, which led to the firm’s first bond offering raising $10 billion.
