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.

Steps for changing MAC Address:

  1. Download and install the tool Technitium MAC Address Changer.
  2. Extract and launch the tool in your PC.MAC Changer Hackagon
  3. Now, select the network where you being currently connected.
  4. Now, click on “Random MAC Address” button. (The process will generate any random MAC Address for your computer.)MAC Generate Hackagon
  5. Now, click on the “Change Now” button at the bottom of the window.MAC Generated
  6. Now, you’ll see a pop-up saying MAC Address was changed successfully”.
  7. Done, now your PC is assigned to a new/random anonymous MAC Address on the network.

So, Stay secure by attackers and surf anonymously on the network by following the above steps to change MAC address of any Windows PC. Hope you like this article. So, don’t forget to share it with your friends and also feel free to drop a comment below if you still face any kind of problem.
