How to make your Wi-Fi address private on iPhone
Submitted by Jon Reed on
Whenever you connect to a Wi-Fi network your iPhone identifies itself with its unique MAC address, which creates a privacy risk. Network operators and other observers could potentially track and profile a MAC address by associating it with network activity and location as it is used on public networks over time. To avoid this, Apple has included a new privacy feature in iOS 14 (and iPadOS 14 and watchOS 7) that lets you use a different unique MAC address for each network you connect to.
