under network and internet, and under wi-fi, the option called random hardware addresses, is it useful? and does it work if I have a static IP address?
When you're not connected to Wi-Fi, your PC sends a signal to look for Wi-Fi networks in the area to help you get connected. The signal contains the unique physical hardware (MAC) address for your device. Some places, for example shopping malls, stores, or other public areas, might use this unique address to track your movement in that area. If your Wi-Fi hardware supports it, you can turn on random hardware addresses to make it harder for people to track you when your PC scans for networks and connects.

i think it works if you have a static IP as i don't think that is what is sent.
