What is a MAC address?

A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to every network capable computer, mobile device, and IoT device. A MAC address consists of twelve hexadecimal characters in six groupings of two characters separated by a hyphen or colon. i.e a1:5c:e3:d2:34:d6. Computers, phones and mobile devices may have more than one network adapter, one for wired and wireless network access.

Find the MAC address for a common device.
