IOS 8 and privacy, Random MAC address

Post by Asad » Mon Jun 16, 2014 6:24 pm

Hello,

recently I have seen some news about the new implementation of the IOS 8 that will randomize the MAC address for privacy issue.
http://www.cso.com.au/article/547177/ap ... king_tool/
Do you have any idea about it and about the future of your system, that the tracking with WiFi MAC addresses wouldn't be possible after IOS8 release in Jan. 2015.

Thanks.

Hi Asad,

We have read about this new Apple feature, but, as it has not been launched, we haven't had the chance to test it.

We will have to take some time to think the implications, and the way the users will use this feature. It's too soon to think about changes.

We will keep you all informed in this respect.

Best regards,

Hi,

Meshlium doesn't hand the MAC Address Randomization.It is just scan device and it doesn't mater if MACs are random or not. Customers develop their own applications behind meshlium to provide logic to the devices that Meshlium scans.

Thank you for your quick answer.

Is it possible to install a program inside the meshlium to handle this security related issues or it has to be handle outside of the device?

Kind regards

Mario.

Hi,

Meshlium doesn't have ssh access enabled, so it isn't possible to install any program. If you want a Meshlium with root access please ask our sales agent for more information.
