    How to get a MAC address for a smartphone?


    I am trying to set up 'parental control' on an australian telstra router and it wants me to provide a mac address for every device I set up a block for. One of those devices is a smartphone and it appears on the router listing with IP addresses only, no MAC address. How can I get round this? I tried to ask them but telstra keeps itself as far away from the customers as possible.

    :)

  2. Change Mac address

    The MAC address is like your devices ID ,so short of being able to change very core settings ,you're not gonna be able to do anything unless I'm mistaken.

    Maybe you don't need to change your MAC address, what is it you're trying to accomplish?

    Spoiler: I found this change mac w/o root I can't say whether or not this is an effective method it's just a method I found after searching this topic .
    I cant say whether or not it is "safe" or if the software required is free. use at your own risk.


    Change MAC Address of Android Devices without Root Access

    Go to Settings>About Phone>Select Status and then make a note of the current MAC Address of your Android device.
    Download the Android Terminal Emulator application from the Google Play Store. You can directly navigate to the Android Terminal Emulator Google Play Store download page by clicking here.
    Launch the above application on your Android device and then type “IP LINK SHOW”.
    Note the interface name of your Android device from the list.
    And then type in the command below,
    ip link set interfacename XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY
    Replace interfacename with the Interface Name of your network that you noted in Step 4 above and XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY with the MAC Address you wish to set.
    And that’s it. The MAC Address of your Android device will now be modified/changed.

    Unmasking a spoofed MAC address

    even if you got it, not much you can do. But yeah the only MAC in the packets would be the spoofed one. Best way to go is just keep filtering for an allowed list, and put encryption on your wireless so no1 can sniff other mac addresses.
