The MAC address extractor extracts MAC (Media Access Control) addresses from an entered text. For a correct extraction, the addresses need to be written in hexadecimal notation. The individual bytes are separated by hyphens or colons, e.g. 00-80-41-ae-fd-7e, or 00:80:41:ae:fd:7e. The MAC address is the unique hardware address of a network device. Furthermore, it can always be clearly identified on a network - contrary to the IP address. A MAC address is also known as Ethernet ID, Wi-Fi address, or physical address.
