Good day,

Whonix doesn’t change your MAC address. Please regard this: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Computer_Security_Education#Random_MAC_address

If you have Windows on your host, download Tmac
If you have Linux, download macchanger (sudo apt-get install macchanger)

so it’s worth changing the poppy ? or not necessarily ?

ego tell please need or not

He can’t. Because it depends. Here is what it depends on:

Try using an online translator. Or post here if you need help understanding something specific that is written.

Good day,

Actually, he can’t, because he has some other things to do over the day and thus can’t be available 24/7.

Now, like @entr0py said, it very much depends. The Mac-Address is however only exposed to your local network, so as long as you control the connection you use, changing it has no purpose.

Have a nice day,

Ego
