What is a MAC address?

MAC address stands for Media Access Control address. It is a unique identifier for devices connected to a given network – either Wi-Fi or Ethernet – and it is usually assigned from the device’s manufacturer. This is why MAC addresses are primarily used to accurately identify hardware and devices of a home or office network.
