On the router can not lock your smartphone as it at the next reboot assigns new Mac address.

Hi,

I just received the UMIDIGI Power here in the UK and I also have this issue. It’s very frustra ...

Exactly the same on Umidigi Power v. 1.3e (EU). Which version do you have?

Upd: generally, there are 2 ways:
1. Obtain a root and modify some configs to disable WiFi MAC randomization;
2. Use EngineerMode (dial *#*#3646633#*#* then go to Connectivity - WiFi - NVRAM (WiFi must be off) - Byte string access - addr 4 length 6 - Read. MAC is displayed in the "value" field (00000000, if randomization). Now you can enter your own 6-bytes MAC and press Write). Then you can switch on phone's WiFi and connect to your router/AP/hotspot. But it works only until reboot/reconnect.
AFAIK, some models with Android 9 have an option to switch randomization on/off. But Power hasn't.

I have exactly the same problem on a A3 Pro and a A5 Pro. Will Umidigi solve this problem?

Hi,

I just received the UMIDIGI Power here in the UK and I also have this issue. It’s very frustrating because many WiFi hotspots use the WiFi MAC address to identity (and remember) your device so this is very inconvenient. Please arrange a fix or patch soon. Thank you

Hello
I have MAC filtering in my network.
Now everytime I reboot the A3 Pro it changes MAC address on the phone.
Can you please make a fix so that the MAC address stays the same and does not change anymore?
Thank you

Hi

I have exactly the same problem with a5 pro. I'm not able to use the phone at work because mac address is used to identify the user and cannot be easily changed. Please make a fix as soon as possible. Thanks
