How to Change Mac Address or Mac Spoofing in windows 10,8,7 in 2 Mins

Here is a tutorial on how to change the mac address of a windows machine very easily, normally mac address is not meant to be changed, but while trying to hack something or while surfing public networks or surfing the network that you hacked. You need to change the mac address to not get caught easily. 


What is Mac Address?

A media access control address (MAC address) of a computer is a unique identifier assigned to network interface for communications at the data link layer of a network segment. MAC addresses are used as a network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet and Wi-Fi. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the media access control protocol sublayer of the OSI reference model.

MAC addresses are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface controller (NIC) and are stored in its hardware, such as the card's read-only memory or some other firmware mechanism. If assigned by the manufacturer, a MAC address usually encodes the manufacturer's registered identification number and may be referred to as the burned-in address (BIA). It may also be known as an Ethernet hardware address (EHA), hardware address or physical address (not to be confused with a memory physical address). This can be contrasted to a programmed address, where the host device issues commands to the NIC to use an arbitrary address.

What is Mac Spoofing?

MAC spoofing is a technique for changing a factory-assigned Media Access Control (MAC) address of a network interface on a networked device. The MAC address that is hard-coded on a network interface controller (NIC) cannot be changed. However, many drivers allow the MAC address to be changed. Additionally, there are tools which can make an operating system believe that the NIC has the MAC address of a user's choosing. The process of masking a MAC address is known as MAC spoofing. Essentially, MAC spoofing entails changing a computer's identity, for any reason, and it is relatively easy.   

What are the uses of Mac Spoofing?

1)  When a public network bans your mac address, you can change your mac address to connect to that network again
2)  It can help us hack Wi-Fi networks
3)  It lets us directly target devices connected to our Local Area Network (LAN)
4)  Setting up numerous virtual machines in a corporate environment, each with a randomly assigned MAC address.
5)  It can be used for improving anonymity
6)  As Mac address is unique, it is used to track your device, so mac spoofing will help you get secured from tracking to some extent.
7)  when you move around, your smartphone or laptops scans for wireless networks and broadcasts its Mac Address

How to Check Your Mac Address?

    1)  Press “Ctrl+R” à Run Starts à in run type “cmd” and open it

    2)  In cmd type “ipconfig/all”

   3)  Scroll down and check your mac address at “Wireless Lan adapter Wifi”. Your Mac Address is called as Physical address

So, How to Change Mac Address or Mac Spoofing In Windows 10,8,7

 1)  Go to Control Panel and open Device Manger

2)  Device manager dialog box opens à Select Network adapters à Select your wireless adapter (Name might vary)

3)  Go to “Advanced”

4)  Select “Network Address” à In Network Address select “Value”

5)  Now enter 16digit alphanumeric data in the “Value” to change your mac address and click ok

6) Lets Check again if the mac address is changed or not. 
    Run--> Cmd --> ipconfig/all

As you can see my Mac Address is changed. That’s it, very simple isn’t it. 

Note: If you ever want to revert changes that you made to your mac address, all you need to do it change it back to “Not present”. It will automatically revert to original mac address.

Just Remember One Thing You Don't Need To Seek Anyone's  Permission To Hack Anything Or Anyone As Long As It Is Ethical, This Is The Main Principle Of Hacking Dream
