MAC (Media Access Control) address is a unique identifier assigned to most Network Adapters or Network Interface Cards (NICs) by the manufacturer for identification, IEEE 802 standards use 48 bits or 6 bytes to represent a MAC address. This 48-bit address space contains potentially 248 or 281,474,976,710,656 possible MAC addresses.

IEEE 802 standards define 3 commonly used formats to print a MAC address in hexadecimal digits:

  1. Six groups of two hexadecimal digits separated by hyphens (-), like 01-23-45-67-89-ab
  2. Six groups of two hexadecimal digits separated by colons (:), like 01:23:45:67:89:ab
  3. Three groups of four hexadecimal digits separated by dots (.), like 0123.4567.89ab

Now a day, MAC address is often used to trace the devices playing over the internet. So for private or anonymous browsing MAC address must be hidden.

Here, we are using a tool by which we can easily change our default MAC address at runtime session, which will make our PC be anonymous on the network as no one can trace the actual MAC address.

  2. Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you
    recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!

    • Here I am using Hostgator. but let me tell you one thing that rendering speed is not because of any hosting company, it’s because of the quality codes. I’ll just suggest you to use asynchronous JavaScript codes (In the case of an external JavaScript file the browser will also have to pause and wait for the script to be fetched from disk, cache, or a remote server, which can add tens to thousands of milliseconds of delay to the critical rendering path.)

      So, how do we achieve this trick? It’s pretty simple, we can mark our script as async:
      Adding the async keyword to the script tag tells the browser that it should not block the DOM construction while it waits for the script to become available.

      Hope HACKAGON‘s reply would match your expectations. if you have any queries you can contact us.

    HACKAGON is kinda plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how
    they create article titles to grab people to open the links.
