How to find the MAC address of your device

A MAC address is a unique hardware address that allows your device to be identified and registered on a network.

Please see the instructions below to find the MAC address of some the most common devices we encounter.

Tips:

  • Some device manufacturers include the MAC address on the box a device is packaged in as well as on a sticker on the device itself (usually on the bottom or back on a stick with the serial number and model information). These are good places to check first for your MAC address!
  • If you need additional help finding your MAC address, you can do a quick Internet search for "how to find your device MAC address" (ex. how to find Playstation 4 MAC address) and you should be able to find out where it is located.
