MAC Spoofing – How to Find & Change the MAC Address of Your Windows Computer

MAC Address (Media Access Control Address)

The Media Access Control (MAC) Address is a 12-character unique identifier assigned to each Network Interface Controller or Network Interface Card (NIC) by its manufacturer. The MAC addresses are used by the IEEE 802 network technologies such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi to transfer data from source to destination. The NIC operates at the Data link layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model, hence the MAC Address is responsible for the transfer of data at the Data link layer of the OSI model.
