Every device has a MAC address, a 17-character string of letters and numbers. And if you just upgraded your Mac machine to the latest macOS Ventura, finding the MAC address is easy and the whole process only takes less than a minute.
I’m an IT professional and former Apple Genius with over 6 years of experience working with Apple products and networking equipment. I have upgraded my MacBook Pro (M1, 16GB RAM, 1TB Storage) to macOS Ventura Developer Beta 7.
In this article, I’m going to show you a detailed guide on how to find the MAC address on your Mac computer, step by step.
What is MAC Address?
Media Access Control Address, better known as MAC Address is a unique 17-character string that every network device has. Many people mistakenly associate MAC addresses with an Apple product due to its naming proximity to the Apple computer lineup.
Because it’s a unique address, MAC addresses enable the devices on the network to be distinguished. MAC addresses play a crucial role in allowing multiple devices to connect to the same network.
How to Find MAC Address on Your Mac with macOS Ventura
Just follow the step-by-step instructions below and you should be able to get it in seconds.
Step 1: On the top left corner, click the Apple icon, and select System Settings.
Step 2: Select Network from the left menu and click on Details next to the menu.
Step 3: On the left corner, click Hardware, and on the right side you will be able to see the MAC address of your device.
Done, that’s it!
See, it’s pretty easy to get the MAC address on a Mac computer with macOS Ventura.
Note that with macOS Ventura, System Preferences is now System Settings and the menu layout has gone through dramatic changes over the beta builds.
