It’s a feature called Personal Limit in your and virtual reality spaces from Horizon Venues to combat harassment. Each will have a bubble with a radius of two virtual feet, so they won’t be able to get within about four feet of each other.

Goal

If someone tries to move into your personal space, forward movement will stop when they get too close. However, Meta said that avatars will still be able to pass through each other, so users don’t get stuck in a corner or doorway.

The Personal Boundary feature, which users won’t be able to turn off, builds on previous measures Meta has added to combat harassment, such as making an avatar’s hands disappear when they enter someone else’s personal space. A bit before for everyone 18 and over in the US and Canada in December, a beta tester your avatar has been groped by a stranger.

Eventually, you will be able to change the radius of your Personal Limit. Users can still greet other avatars, but they need to extend their arms to do so.
