Why Should Hide MAC Address
1.A very important reason is privacy. Just like an IP address is your ID on the internet, a MAC address is your ID on the local Ethernet network. Recently, as the rise of mobile network, with WiFi & bluetooth hotspots everywhere, the privacy implications of MAC address tracking have been the subject of increasing debate.
2.When scanning for wireless networks, client devices like the laptops or mobile phones periodically broadcast identifying packets that include the MAC address. In recent years, a number of firms have taken advantage of these broadcasts to track individual devices as they move around - for example, some retail outlets use MAC address-based tracking to record the path that consumers take as they move through the store, allowing long-term measurement of shopping habits and better placement of sale materials and advertising.
3.Not only the merchants who provide WiFi hotspots, actually your MAC address can be seen by everyone on the local Ethernet network using many simple tools. A hacker on local network thus can track machines (and thus you) on the network, for purposes such as man-in-the-middle attacks that let them intercept users' traffic. This is especially a threat when you are on a wireless network and are using a public WiFi network like in coffee shops, hotels or airports.
