Usage

Bluetooth MAC Address Changer for Windows screenshot

1. Enter desired bluetooth MAC address (or generate random one by pressing "Random" button).
Bluetooth address should be in the format (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX) or (XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX).
Since changing Bluetooth Address to 00:00:00:00:00:00 (all zeroes) can make bluetooth adapter non-functional (bricked), this address is banned in version 1.3. (more details about Invalid Bluetooth Address)
2. Click "Change" button. 
3. If "Auto reset" option is not used, replug the bluetooth adapter manually.

Tips and Tricks

There is no feature like "Restore original bluetooth MAC address". We recommend to write down the original bluetooth address in case you wish to restore it later.

Sometimes "Auto reset" feature may fail. In this case replug the bluetooth adapter manually.

If you run Bluetooth MAC Address Changer in virtual machine (Virtualbox, etc.) your bluetooth adapter may get detached from guest system if "Auto reset" option selected. You may need to reattach it again.
