How to find the MAC address on an Android tablet?
« on: March 03, 2014, 07:53:06 PM »
Where is the MAC address on an Android tablet?

The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique 12 digit address which is specific to only one device.  It usually looks something like 00:00:00:00:00:0X with the "0"s being different numbers.

How is a MAC address used?  For security purposes, some networks require that you give them your device's MAC address for a couple of reasons.  One reason is to give you universal access to their network regardless of location, the other reason is to add an additional level of access security.  If a network uses MAC addresses, then only the devices that have a MAC address listed with the network can gain access.

Here is how to find the MAC address on an Android tablet:
  • Touch Settings
  • If the Settings on your tablet has various tabs, Touch the General tab, scroll down and touch About device.
  • Scroll down looking for Wi-Fi MAC address; or Touch Status, then scroll down looking for Wi-Fi MAC address
