Meta may have sold about 10 million Oculus Quest 2, but more than 10 million people use them. Many people share their headphones with relatives, children, roommates or friends at parties. But sharing means that these people can use (and mess up) your saved files or multiplayer game records. Fortunately, you can create multiple Quest 2 accounts and share the game library between these accounts to stay independent without wasting money. This is how to do it.
