We encourage developers to create a variety of virtual reality experiences that users will enjoy. This is why we allow Developer Mode to be enabled on Oculus Go and Quest — to allow developers to run, debug, and test their apps.
Developer Mode is not intended for piracy. Our Terms of Service prohibit accessing or using our services for any illegal or unauthorized purpose, including violating any rights of Oculus, our users, or any third party. Our Code of Conduct likewise forbids users from encouraging or promoting illegal activity. We may also employ dedicated teams and develop advanced technical systems to detect misuse, and we reserve the right to take appropriate action in accordance with our Terms of Service, including removing content, blocking access to certain features, disabling an account, or contacting law enforcement.
The Oculus Platform Abuse Policy below explains the types of activities that violate our Terms of Service and Code of Conduct and the actions we may take in response to any violations.

We may take any or all of these actions based on our assessment of the activity, with or without prior notice, preliminary warnings, or other lesser responses, in our sole discretion on a case-by-case basis, as we deem appropriate. We may also take any other approach to the enforcement of our policy that we deem appropriate. This Policy does not limit any other rights or remedies available to us.
We want to protect our developer community and our end users. If we limit, suspend or terminate your access to any Oculus Platform features, or your access to Developer Mode, or your Oculus user account, please be aware of the following information.
If you think we made a mistake in taking any action described in this Policy, you may appeal our decision by contacting us here.
