    Windows 10 Home Creators Edition

    Hi, Brink.

    The choice of "Change Daily" seems pretty self-explanatory in the per-network WiFi settings.
    However, it begs a question:

    How often is the MAC address changed if you simply select "On" instead of "Change Daily"?

    In particular, suppose you go to location "A" and connect, then travel to location "B" and connect (different SSID), then back to "A" -- all in the same day. What happens? What if they were physically different locations but used the same router hardware and the same SSID? (For example, a chain of stores such as a Publix.)

    Or, suppose you're in location "A" and connect, then disconnect, then connect again. Does "On" mean you spoof a different MAC every time you connect?


    Here's hoping you know the answer! Thanks!

    Hello Forbin, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    "On" should be each time you connect.

    It will only apply to the Wi-Fi adapter though.
