Android randomised Mac address


My cell even after A factory reset gives me an option to use a randomize MAC address any thoughts on this as I thought this was highly illegal I’ve tried to report this and I’ve gotten nowhere as it’s happened on my previous five phones my newest one a Motorola power I received in the mail today after I’m boxing it as I’m connecting to the Internet it immediately gives me the same option where I can use a randomize MAC address or the device MAC addressWhat should I do with this

Hello @Shanesawed

Welcome!

  1. Read before you create a new topic! tutorial by @Danila T. 
  2. Android OS had full MAC randomization since Android 9. It used to be OFF by default on all devices, but some manufacturers have started to ship devices with randomization enabled by default. 
  3. You need to ask Motorola which applies to your phone? 
  4. Is KIS Premium  or Free? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:
