Hello, are there any options to disable the Private address in iOS 14?
Hi Andrew Mullins
As of now it is not possible to disable private addressing in iOS 14. However, we will check with development team if we can implement this feature in upcoming version release.
Do you want to disable Private address with the help of restrictions(if available) in Sophos central mobile?
hi we dont have central we only have Mobile control
but yes we want to disbale this, is there an option?
I would suggest you raise a feature request via this link: ideas.sophos.com/.../143212-sophos-mobile
thats a massive shame, any wifi that has MAC filtering is now a problem :-(
Hi Andrew Mullins
I certainly understand your concern, I would suggest you raise a fearure request so that our development team can look into it and consider its feasibility in upcoming version release.
you have to try this
thanks i know about the manual changes on the device, problem is we have about 3k apple devices all using mac\cert based wi-fi authentication and we cant go round that many devices. was hoping for a central policy change to fix all.
hi further info on this, its appears this is now an issues on Android 10 devices with randomized mac address. the problem is that when private addressing for iOS and randomized mac on droid 10 is turned off, SMC does NOT refresh the devices MAC address to use the device MAC, it maintains the randomized address in SMC that it was enrolled with. so for any systems that use MAC address authentication (Cisco ISE) which checks SMC to ensure the MAC is identical it will fail authentication as SMC has logged the spoofed MAC. written quickly so hope that makes sense :-)
Hello Andrew Mullins
We will soon be adding the option to disable mac address randomization on iOS. This will be available in the version 9.6 service release of Sophos Mobile, which is planned in the coming weeks.
