How to Find the MAC Address Of Amazon Echo

So you’ve set up a MAC filter for your Wi-Fi network to keep unwanted people out. This means that you have to manually allow a device’s MAC address so it can connect to your Wi-Fi. So, if you have a new Echo and want to connect it to your home Wi-Fi, you need to find its MAC address. But how can you do that?

First, let’s understand what a MAC address is. A MAC address is a 12-digit hexadecimal number assigned to every device connected to a network. You can usually find the unique hardware MAC address of a device printed on its network interface card (NIC). Keep in mind that a device may have more than one MAC address if it has multiple network interfaces. For example, if your computer has Ethernet and Wi-Fi, it will display two MAC addresses.

Now, let’s talk about finding the MAC address of your Amazon Echo. There are a few different methods you can use, such as using the Alexa app or checking the device’s original packaging.

If your Alexa is already set up, you can use the Alexa app on your phone to find its MAC address. Here’s how you do it:

1. Launch the Alexa app on your phone and go to the Devices tab at the bottom.

2. Select your Echo device from the list of devices.

3. Tap on the gear icon in the top right corner.

4. Scroll down and select About.

5. Under the About section, you will see the MAC Address along with the software version and other details.

But what if you haven’t connected your Echo device to a Wi-Fi network yet and you’re unable to access the Alexa app? Don’t worry, you can still find the MAC address using the device’s original packaging. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Locate the original packaging of your Echo device.

2. Look for a label or sticker on the packaging that displays the MAC address.

3. The MAC address will be a series of characters, usually located near the barcode or product information.

By following these methods, you should be able to find the MAC address of your Amazon Echo, whether you use the Alexa app or check the original packaging.

I suggest reaching out to Amazon support. They’ll be able to help you find your Echo’s MAC address.
