Q. What is a MAC address?

A. A MAC address is a unique ID code assigned to network cards.

MAC stands for "Media Access Control," and this unique code is stored in the read-only memory of the hardware device itself.

This MAC address is often used to uniquely identify a user, by gaming websites, ISPs, and WiFi networks -- and, as such, often poses a security threat.

Q. What is Change MAC Address?

A. Change MAC Address is a simple application, which does just what it says on the box!

Change MAC Address enables you to alter your MAC address, essentially changing your computer's identity -- in the eyes of any outside party.

It enables you to change your MAC to a random address, or to a specific address, if you wish to spoof another device directly.

Q. Why would I want to change my MAC address?

A. There are many reasons for wishing to change your MAC address.

For example, WiFi networks collect the MAC addresses of all users, and hackers may use this information to subsequently monitor your online activity. By spoofing your MAC address, you guarantee your privacy.

Online gaming sites use MAC addresses to monitor users, and may unfairly ban users based on their MAC address. By spoofing your MAC address, you can rejoin again without issue.

Some ISPs authenticate devices based on their MAC address, causing havoc if you wish to install your own router or other network device. By spoofing the existing MAC address, you can ensure total device compatibility.

You already know why you want to change your MAC address. And now you finally have the program to do it!

Q. How does Change MAC Address work?

A. Change MAC Address works by delving into your computer registry, and updating a number of specialized keys -- which Windows uses to report your current MAC addresses.

You can try editing the values directly, under the registry section - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

However we do NOT recommend doing this without expert guidance, as it may cause intense computer problems, which in many cases can only be resolved with a full computer rebuild.

Instead, simply load Change MAC Address, click a button -- and you're done!

Q. Will this work on my computer?

A. Almost certainly, yes!

Change MAC Address works on any 32-bit and 64-bit edition of Windows.
