How to Find the MAC Address on a Samsung Galaxy On5

Occasionally a network administrator might need to know some information about your Android phone so that they can permit it to access a network. Often this is done through something called MAC filtering, which blocks devices like phones or computers from accessing a network unless they are on an approved list of devices.

This list is comprised of MAC addresses, which is a piece of information that is attached to a device that is able to access a network. MAC addresses can be found directly on the device itself, and rarely (if ever) change. But if you have never had to locate the MAC address on your Samsung Galaxy ON5 before, then you may not know where to find it. Our guide below will show you where to find your device’s MAC address so that you can provide it to someone if asked.

Most other devices have a MAC address as well, including iPhones. Our MAC address on iPhone tutorial will show you how to locate that information on an Apple phone.
