I bought this app and the reason I stopped using it is that my router thinks each new MAC address is a new device and it keeps a list of devices even after they have disappeared. So after a while I have this super long list of MAC addresses stored in my router. I don't know what the maximum number is but to delete them I have to do it manually. This is probably not the fault of WiFi Spoof but it's still a nuisance.

Just a comment about why this program may be useful: The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique identifier assigned by manufacturers to the network card in a computer. As opposed to an IP address, which is a software address, the MAC is a hardware address. Its format is two sets of three octets, with the first set identifying the manufacturer. The MAC address is included in network packets, so even if you change your IP address via VPN, your MAC address stays the same. It could potentially identify your computer despite attempts to mask its identity. For a good explanation, read https://whatismyipaddress.com/mac-address

You can do the same thing by opening a terminal and typing: openssl rand -hex 6 | sed 's/\(..\)/\1:/g; s/.$//' | xargs sudo ifconfig en1 ether You will be prompted for your PW and thats it.

Every version of v3 has a stupid, aggravating bug:

When I open it, the Randomize and Change Address buttons are greyed out. The only way to make them clickable is by bringing another window forward and then going back to the WFS window. For some reason that fixes it...until next time.

The Random Address menu also seems to be frivolous and unnecessary. I don’t know why anyone would need to use any of the hundreds of vendor brands listed. Perhaps there’s one guy out there who does, but for everyone else it’s useless.
And there’s no help file to explain why/when to change vendors.

If you have this set to randomize your MAC address at set intervals (30 minutes is default), you may lose your Internet connection occasionally when it switches. When this happens it takes 75 seconds on my system to reestablish the connection.

I just tested it several times - I had a good connection (all green in Network Diagnostics), and refreshed a webpage. Then I hit the Randomize button and all the lights turned red. Each time it took a minute and 15 seconds to reconnect.
Just happened again when it auto-randomized as I was writing this.

I make a lot of calls via Google, and have been disconnected several times. I have to remember to force quit WiFiSpoof in Activity Monitor before calling anyone.

If you are on ML or older, you are out of luck. For some reason all the old version links goes to the current release. So i go opensource, best solution: https://github.com/feross/SpoofMAC

Russell, sorry to hit you with this, on top of just leaving you a long post on Cookie 4.2, (and there's more, but not now). WiFiSpoof 2.1.1 is constantly asking for me to give it my password, not just once in awhile, but repeatedly, throughout the day. Is this a "settings" issue, normal, or am I going to have to deal with this as I have it change my MAC address every 90 minutes? Thanks in advance.. ;-) Annie

Not working on my Late-2006 2.16 GHz Core2Duo iMac 5,1 with 2 GB of RAM running OS 10.7.5 and Angry Birds Rio. When I click “Randomize" the address changes for a blink of an eye then changes back before you can say “donkey balls”. Nor does it heed the preference I have set to “Randomize address on Launch” — both addresses are always the same. Always. Same. By the way, I’m not really sure if this app ever worked on my iMac because I never opened the WiFiSpoof Window until now. When I said in previous posts that it worked great, that just meant that I could see the WiFiSpoof icon when it was on, and I couldn’t see it when it was off. I know what you’re thinking, “He's a dunderhead.” But I assure you, there is no dunder in my head. Probably dander, though (On it, not In it, silly). While I got you on the phone, let me ask you a question or two. When this app really works, does it really work? That is to say, is the WiFi MAC Address really the only means by which other computers on the network can identify my WiFi card, computer and fingertips? So every time I change the MAC Address — if WiFiSpoof COULD change the MAC Address — the network thinks mine is a totally different WiFi card, computer and fingertips? And if I have the firewall set to use Stealth Mode, can other people on the network see my computer name in the sidebar of a Finder window under the “SHARED” header? I can see them, but they can’t see me, is that the skinny? Or have I completely misunderstood Stealth Mode?

As with previous versions I tried, this seems to do absolutely nothing. Every time I select "Randomize MAC Address" from the menu icon or press the Randomize button, the address generated stays the same as the hardware address. OS X 10.7.5

What a great little app. It does exactly what it claims to do which is add an option to randomize your MAC address. One feature I would like to see in a future version is an option to randomize the MAC address on a timed interval. Having a button in the pull down menu that returned the MAC address to default might be handy also. Having said that, the app really is perfect as is, I'm just throwing out a couple requests.

I have some app from same developers (Cookie,colorwell,desktop utility) and see this little app. It's very handy! i use it without problem, and make it easier than type it in terminal especially for people like (not a super user just regular user which use computer for work). No problem so far. and its FREE, further more the developers really listen to user suggestion even for free app. What a great app from responsive developers, if you like this app, better check their other app.

I too would be mighty grateful if WiFiSpoof included an option to run as a standalone app instead of keeping its icon in the menubar. A 13” MacBook Pro runs out of space in the menubar quite easily, especially if you use iStat Menus. Otherwise, thanks for the great app!

This little program gets better with each update. Two things are still bugging me, though. First, everywhere in the interface it should be MAC address rather than Mac address - all caps is correct only. It has nothing to do with "Mac" as in Macintosh. Second, I'd like to have an option to reset the MAC address to the hardware address. I know, it does reset itself with every reboot, but it would be great to have a "reset" button in the "WifiSpoof window" next to the top line with the hardware MAC address.

I used to do the Wifi spoof manually, which is pretty simple, but of course to have a dedicated little program to do the same thing is great! Finally, with the new version 1.0.2 it disconnects/reconnects to networks, something which was missing in the earlier versions and made the program much less useful then. Also, the usability was improved by inactivating the "update" button when there was nothing to update (before, it was not entirely clear whether you'd first have to "randomize", and then "update", or what - now it is completely clear). One thing I'd like to see in a future version would be to run the program as a regular app, rather than from the menu bar. I'd prefer to start the program, click randomize, and the program terminates automatically. I doubt that there is need to have it in the menu bar for a longer time. Thanks to the programmer for giving this useful little tool to us!
