Locating Your Device's MAC Address

The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique 12-digit hexadecimal number assigned to the network interface (e.g. ethernet card) in your network-enabled device.
Note: Your wireless will need to be enabled in order to locate your MAC address. If you are not sure how to enable wireless on your device please refer to the instructions that came with your device.

Mobile OS


  1. Go to the Settings app on the home screen of your iOS device.
  2. Select General, then select About.
  3. Scroll down and look for Wi-Fi Address, that is your iOS device’s MAC address.


  1. Open your Settings app.
  2. Select the Network & Internet option at the top of the screen.
  3. If Wi-Fi is not turned on, toggle it on and connect to the UH wireless network.
  4. Click on the Cog icon next to the UH wireless network. MAC addresses are randomized by default on Android and are unique to each wireless network (SSID). If you are looking to find your MAC address for a different network, select the Cog icon next to that network, instead.
  5. Scroll down and find the Randomized MAC address field to find your device's MAC address.
  6. You can tap and hold on that field to copy the MAC address to your device's clipboard, if you wish.

*Note: Android 10 and iOS 14 introduced a randomized MAC address option. If your UHM wireless passthrough stops working and you have Android 10 and higher or iOS 14 and higher, you may need to change this option to use the device's MAC address. Learn how to disable this feature.
