MAC address spoofing

For privacy reason I need my /e/ phone to spoof the MAC address.
Is /e/ doing this by default? If not, what can I do?


Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone


Its nice to have an un-googled phone, but if the MAC is not spoofed, there is not much privacy.

What MAC ? WiFi, Bluetooth, GSM ?

For WiFi you can search for “Connected MAC randomization” in “Developer options”.

Wifi mainly, please explain again to me where I should look and search of it.
Dont think I can follow. Thanks

Hi @borcherta. I am on 0.16 /e/OS Q. For me, the setting is found in Settings/Network & Internet/Wi-Fi. When you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, click on the “gear” symbol to the right of the network- this brings you to “Network details”. Then click on “Advanced”. In “Privacy” you should see the option to “Use a randomized MAC”.
