How to Disable Randomized MAC Addresses on Android
Newer Android devices will have the Randomized MAC Address setting turned on which will cause issues with your registration to the King’s College's wireless network. It’s easy to switch the randomized MAC address setting on or off whenever you want. But before you do this, know that various Android models and versions use different names for certain Settings options. For example, a OnePlus phone says, “Wi-Fi & Network,” and a Samsung one says, “Connections,” but they both take you to the same Wi-Fi settings menu.
With that in mind, open the “Settings” app on your Android phone. On most phones, pull down from the top of your screen and tap the gear icon to open Settings. You can also open your apps list and tap “Settings.”
In Settings, tap “Wi-Fi & Network” (or “Connections” or “Network & Internet” depending on your device).
Next, tap “Wi-Fi” to view your Wi-Fi networks.
When you see your Wi-Fi network name in the list, tap the gear icon beside it.
Next, tap “Advanced.” Then tap “Privacy.”
On OnePlus and Pixel phones, select “Use device MAC.” If you use a Samsung device, tap “MAC address type” and choose “Phone MAC.” If your device is different than both of these, look for a similar option that says “MAC” and enable it.
That’s it! Exit Settings, and you’re done. Make sure that you follow this procedure for each Wi-Fi network where you want to use the phone’s actual MAC address.
