H! readers, now again in row hottest news on iOS 8 features secure tracking WiFi locations, last week @ WWDC iOS 8 announced and bundled news features on it more security. Now, another important feature related to protecting user location has been discovered by security expert Frederic Jacobs.He revealed that iOS 8 uses random network identifiers when scanning for WiFi access and generates a MAC (Media Access Controller) address.



MAC address is a unique identifier for every devices, when you connect with Wi-Fi, it's very easy to track you by the MAC address, we appreciate the team for implementing this feature as marketing and analytics companies routinely use this unique identifier to collect data about nearby devices scanning for WiFi network.
