We've built over 30 tools, features and resources that help teens have safe, positive experiences, and give parents easy ways to set boundaries for their teens. You can find more information about these features in our Help Centre.
Meta Horizon Worlds was built with safety features that help people feel in control of their experience. We encourage you and your teen to become familiar with these settings and resources.
We require creators to rate worlds and events with mature content as 18+ and don't allow teens under the age of 18 to find, publish or enter these spaces. We regularly review worlds and remove worlds that aren't rated accurately. We also encourage people to report worlds and events that aren't rated accurately or anyone they think may be under the age of 18 in a mature world or event. If we review the report and determine that the person is under 18, they will be blocked from mature worlds and events going forwards.
We want to help prevent teens from hearing from adults that they may not know. That's why we take steps to prevent interactions between adults and unconnected teens. For example, we don't display any adults that a teen doesn't know in their "people that you might know" list.
We've also built in protections such as personal boundary, voice mode and blurred chats that help limit interactions between teens and people they don't know. We automatically turn off Active Status settings for teens, preventing others from seeing when they're active or what public world or event they're visiting in Meta Horizon Worlds. When a teen makes a Meta Horizon profile, it's automatically set to private so that they can control who follows them.
We have community guides in a few key public spaces to help answer questions and report and remove people who aren't following our Code of Conduct for Virtual Experiences. We also encourage you to talk with your teens about healthy online interactions and ways that they can feel safer, including:
Your teen can invite you to connect to their Meta Horizon Worlds account through their headset or the Meta Quest app. Both you and your teen can also invite to connect accounts through the Family Centre dashboard.
Once connected, you can access Meta Horizon Worlds parental supervision in the Meta Quest app by going to Menu > Parental supervision. From there, you can select your teen's account, then select Apps > Meta Horizon Worlds.
