RANDOM MAC ADDRESS SETTING in ANDROID WIFI SETTINGS
What is a MAC address?


For those that might not know, a MAC (Media Access Control) address is a unique identifier. This address allows the device to be authenticated on Wifi Networks. It is a unique address that identifies your device so the Clubwifi Servers recognise your device when logging in.

If your random MAC ADDRESS option is ON on your device, you will experience dropouts and disconnections from Clubwifi networks. This is due to the fact your device has automatically changed its MAC Address so the authentication server no longer knows who you are and logs you out. To prevent this, follow the steps below.
 

  1. Open the Settings app.

  2. Tap Network & Internet.

  3. Tap Wi-Fi.

  4. Tap the gear icon associated with the wireless connection to be configured.

  5. Tap Advanced.

  6. Tap Privacy.

  7. Tap Use device MAC (as shown in the red box here).

For more detailed information regarding Android Random MAC addressing - please refer to your latest release software updates.
