lens distance moves during game play

Hello I've already posted on steam VR but I believe it is an Oculus issue. The message "Distance Between Lens". It pops up every few seconds on my Oculus Rift when playing shooters etc on Steam. My friend doesn't suffer this with his Rift. is there a way to tighten adjuster or do I have a defective Rift? Thanks

    I read several times post about it, but weirdly I never saw any pop-up message about lens distance changing, even when adjusting distance between lens on the Fly (not on the green cross dedicated menu), from Home or Steam games/apps.

    I wouldn't go by what STEAM says at first. (I've never seen this msg) Does the IPD (lens distance) in-fact change, if you check this from Oculus menu in VR? If this stays the same and doesn't actually change, it must be a problem with Steam and not Oculus or the Slider. (If the lens distance in Oculus would change, try a few times with the slider, this is not always 100% and sometimes my change on its own eg. if you knock the unit a little harder than you should. Might need a few tries to really keep the slider at the position.)

    I don't believe that is an Oculus message. At least I've never seen it, and I tried moving the IPD slider and there is no popup.
