How to skip MAC address randomization using KSP
Last updated July 26th, 2023
MAC randomization support depends on the chipset and OS.
This feature is not supported on One UI Core devices. For more information, contact the B2B customer support.
- Knox Platform for Enterprise (KPE)
- Knox Service Plugin (KSP)
On Android 10 devices and above, Wi-Fi settings can be configured to have the MAC address as “Randomized MAC” or “Phone MAC”. Currently the default setting is “Randomized MAC”. If an IT administrator wishes to configure a device to use “Phone MAC” instead, KSP can be used to control this setting.
How can I disable MAC address randomization using KSP?
Starting in version 1.2.57 of KSP, an IT administrator can change the default Wi-Fi network setting on a device to skip MAC address randomization and use the device’s own MAC address instead.
In KSP, go to Device-wide policies > Device Controls > Wi-Fi Policy.
Set Enable Wi-Fi policy controls to Enable.
Set Allow to configure Wi-Fi (Configure details below) to Enable.
Go to Wi-Fi Configurations and add another configuration profile.
Enter the Wi-Fi Network Name.
Select the Wi-Fi Security Type.
Enter the Wi-Fi network Password.
Set Skip Mac Randomization to True.
Save and publish your changes.
