1. Next thing is to download a free app called the Android Terminal Emulator. Install it on your device. You need to know the name of your card to actually make the change. So open the app and type

    ip link show

    You will get a list of the different interfaces. On the list search for the address that matches the one that you found out earlier. Now to change it to the temporary address just type in the following commands:

    ip link set AAAA address XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY

    ip link set AAAA broadcast XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY.

    Here AAAA is the name of the interface that you want to change and XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY is the new temporary address that you are assigning to the hardware. Remember that the address is made up of characters so it can be numbers or alphabets. Now to check whether the address has changed just type

    ip link show AAAA

    While denoting the new address it is important to keep in mind that only the last 3 sets should be changed. The first three sets should be kept same. If you change them you will face a lot of authentication issues.

    As these changes are temporary whenever you reboot your device the MAC address will change back to the original address so you will have to repeat the above instructions again.

    You can also try MAC changer App. Thanks
