Purpose of manufacturers to set the MAC Address

The purpose of MAC addresses is to provide a unique physical address for every node on a network. The first 24 bits identify the manufacturer, and the remaining bits identify the type of device and provide a specific serial number for the unit. It has 48 bits in total, 12 characters.

MAC Address VS. IP Address

A similarity between them is that they are both used when information needs to travel  between networks and routers.

(http://www.infocellar.com/networks/ip/mac-vs-ip.htm)

A difference is that an IP Address is assigned by the internet provider and the MAC Address by the hardware manufacturer.

MAC Address in security

MAC Addresses can be used a security measure for your WLAN. All you have to do is enable MAC filterin. What this means is that the administrator of the network must enter in the router a list of the MAC Addresses of the devices allowed in the WLAN. Like this, whenever an unlisted device tries to access the network, the router will reject it.

Lack of MAC Address Protecion

A way of getting your MAC Address hacked is by agreeing to let a piece of software to change it. This is usually requested by a hacker and you he/she will now have access to your computer. Plus, it will probably prevent you from having access to your own WLAN because your MAC Address will no longer appear in the allowed list. So, never allow a third party program to alter any of your system settings.
