New random MAC address?


#1

If I understand generating new MAC address for every session will improve anonymity?
Should I do it both on GW and WS?


#2

Good day,

would do only if you connect over a WiFi you don’t control. Furthermore, has nothing to do with Whonix, as this would have to happen on your host.

Have a nice day,

How is “nothing to do with Whonix”? I would change MAC address on Whonix VMs, not my physical router.


#5

Because the place where it may be useful to change the MAC address is on the host. Changing them inside Whonix VMs is not useful.
