What is a MAC Address and How to Find It On PC or Mac

Any device that connects to a WiFi network must identify itself to the network using a unique network address. This unique identifier, known as the Media Access Control (MAC) address helps the network administrators or observers track or profile every user’s network activity and location over time.

While you may not have to worry about your device’s MAC address most of the time, there are times you need to know your network adapter’s MAC address. This way, you can identify the device or configure networking permissions on your router.

Whatever your reasons for needing your MAC address, we’ll show you several ways to do it on both Mac and PC.

What is a MAC Address?

The MAC address is a unique 17-character (00:1A:C2:9B:00:68, for example) which serves as a hardware identifier that’s embedded on your computer’s network interface controller (NIC) card.

The unique identifier is assigned by the device manufacturer and permanently tied to your device. This allows for communication between devices within a local network to initiate a connection.

There are two main types of MAC addresses: Universally Administered Address (UAA) and Locally Administered Address (LAA).

The UAA is the more popular type, which is assigned by the device manufacturer, while the LAA changes your adapter’s MAC address. You can assign the LAA to your network device and it will override the address assigned by the manufacturer.

Your device’s MAC address is sometimes confused for the IP address even though both are used to identify your device on the internet, but there are some major differences. 

MAC addresses are permanently assigned by the device manufacturer to identify your machine from others and are designed not to be modified. IP addresses handle the logical routable connection from your devices and networks, and can change based on location.

Your device’s MAC address is used inside your local network, while the IP address can be used across the world to identify network devices.

How to Record Skype Calls on Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android

Whether you want to make a meeting shareable with your clients or replay a memorable video chat with family or friends, Skype’s call recordings makes it possible with the click of a mouse.

Skype added the audio and video call recording feature in 2018 so you can save your calls for future reference.  

Skype call recording is easy to do as long as everyone in the meeting knows and agrees to be recorded. This way, you can respect everyone’s privacy and avoid potential legal issues.

We’ll walk you through how to record Skype calls on Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android.

How to Record Skype Calls on Different Devices

The Skype call recordings feature is available on desktop, mobile, and web versions, so you can use it on a PC, Mac, Android, iPhone or iPad. Here are a few things to note before you begin recording your calls:

  • Skype will notify all participants that the call is being recorded.
  • You can only record Skype-to-Skype calls.
  • For video calls, Skype combines all streams in the recording, including yours.
  • If you share your screen during the meeting, the recording will include the shared screen.
  • The maximum length of one call recording is 24 hours. If it’s longer than that, the recording may be split into multiple files.
  • Once you leave a call, the recording automatically stops. It will be available for 30 days during which you can save, listen to, or share with others.

How to Record Skype Calls on Windows 10

If you’re using a Windows 10 PC, the recording happens in the cloud (Microsoft servers) where it stays for 30 days, so you don’t need local storage to save it. 

  1. To get started, open Skype and select the audio or video call button to start the session.
  1. Select the three-dotted button at the lower right side to open the menu.
  1. Next, select Start recording and Skype will start recording your audio or video call.
  1. Select the menu at the lower right side and select Stop recording. Alternatively, select Stop recording at the upper left side of your screen.
  1. Once you stop the recording, you’ll see the audio or video conversation in the Skype chat box. From here, you can save, replay, share, or download it manually to store it on your computer.

You can download or delete the Skype call recording. 

  • To download the recording, go to Recent Chats, select the conversation, and right-click on the recording to reveal the menu. Select the menu > Save to Downloads.

Choose the folder destination where you want to save your recording to, give it a descriptive file name, and then select Save. The file will be saved as an MP4 file.

  • To delete the Skype call recording, go to Recent Chats, right-click the recording you want to delete and select Remove from the menu.
  • Select Remove to delete the recording completely from the Skype chat timeline history.

How to Record Skype Calls on Mac

Recording a Skype call on Mac is just as easy to do as with a Windows 10 PC. Here’s how.

  1. Start the Skype audio or video call on your Mac. Select the + button at the lower right side of the screen, and then select Start recording to record the session. All participants will get a notification via a banner at the top of their screens that you’re recording the current session.
  1. Just before the session ends, select Stop recording at the top of your screen or just end the call.
  1. Go to the chat and select the menu > More options > Save to Downloads to save the recording.

Note: You can also record your audio or video calls for free using the QuickTime player on your Mac. Open QuickTime on your Mac, select File > New Screen Recording.

Select the Recording button to start recording your Skype call and then select the Stop button to stop recording or press Command+Ctrl+Escape on your keyboard.

How to Record Skype Calls on Android

  1. To start recording Skype calls on an Android device, open Skype, tap the address book and select the contact you want to call.
  2. Next, tap the video or audio call button to start the call, and then tap the three dots at the bottom right side of the screen to open the menu.
  1. Tap Start recording button and the call will be recorded. Your contact will be notified that you’re recording the call.
  1. When you’re done with the session, tap Stop recording at the top left side. Alternatively tap the menu at the bottom and then tap Stop recording.

The recording will be available for you to save or share on the Skype chat timeline. To save, share or remove the recording, tap and hold the recording in the chat box to display the Save, Forward, or Remove options.

How to Record Skype Calls on iPhone

With a simple tap, you can record Skype calls on iPhone instead of trying to take notes to capture everything.

  1. To get started, open Skype and start an audio or video call with your contact(s). Tap the three dots at the lower right side of your screen to open the Menu.
  1. Tap Start Recording once your caller joins. When the session is over, your recording will be available in the Skype chat area.
  1. You’ll get a notification at the top left side of your screen confirming that the recording has begun. Tap and hold the recording to save it to your device or share it with others.

Note: If you’re not using Skype version 8.0, you may not be able to record any audio or video calls. In this case, you can use a third-party app like the free MP3 Skype Recorder, which works with Skype version 7 and is free for non-commercial use. Other such apps include Pamela for Skype and Evaer Skype recorder.

Record Skype Calls for Future Reference

If you generally use Skype to record meetings, video conferences, or interviews, having a native recorder makes Skype feel like an all-in-one package. 

The old version needed third-party recorders, but some of them could get finicky especially with video calls. Check out our other guides on how to record a FaceTime call and other VOIP calls, how to screen record on a Mac, how to record a Zoom meeting, and the best screen recorders for Windows 10.

7 Best Screen Protectors for Android and iPhone

The sound of a phone dropping on the floor can be scary.

Occasionally, the phone lands on its back, but the protective phone case keeps it from getting scratched or dented. Other times, the phone will fall face down and you’re not sure whether the screen is cracked or shattered.

With a screen protector, you can save yourself from the potential heartache of a shattered glass face.

Below you’ll find a selection of the best screen protectors for Android and iPhone that will keep your phone free from scratches, marks, or cracks.

What Is a Screen Protector?

A screen protector is an extra sheet of clear plastic film or liquid that adheres to your phone’s screen and protects it against physical damage. The material is commonly made of laminated glass or polyurethane, and is cut to fit the shape of your device.

In the event of a drop or fall, it’s far easier to replace a screen protector than replacing the phone’s screen itself. It also keeps the screen in far better condition over the lifetime of the phone.

Types of Screen Protectors for Android and iPhone

There are four main types of screen protectors:

  • Tempered glass: This screen protector is easy to apply to your phone’s screen and has a nice feel to it. Plus, it’s thicker and tougher than the plastic type in terms of scratch and drop protection. You can also get the tempered glass screen protector in more varieties with features like privacy or anti-glare.
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET): This is a cheap, light, thin and smooth screen protector that offers the least impact and scratch protection. While the PET protector gives your phone’s screen a decently smooth feel, it’s not that tough and is also a bit stiff so it can’t go edge-to-edge on phones with curved screens.
  • Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU): This is a thin, flexible material that’s used for most plastic screen protectors. TPU has better impact protection than PET and can go edge-to-edge on any phone. However, it’s not as easy to install as it involves using a spray solution and it has an almost rubbery texture.
  • Liquid Screen Protector: This type of screen protector is applied on your phone by swabbing a solution and then buffing it off. The protector is only useful for preventing some scratches, meaning tough scratches can still get through to your phone’s actual screen. Plus, liquid screen protectors can’t protect your phone from a serious drop. 

Best Screen Protectors for Android And iPhone

1. Otterbox AlphaGlass

This screen protector is made from anti-scratch and anti-shatter glass for strong protection. 

The protector comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth, squeegee card, dust-removal sticker, and installation instructions. Plus, it works with various Otterbox cases, and is designed specifically for Google Pixel 4 phones.

2. Spigen AlignMaster Tempered Glass Screen Protector

The highlight of the Spigen AlignMaster screen protector is its installer, which helps you align the protector perfectly during application. 

The tempered glass protector is tough, and works with most Spigen phone cases. However, the protector doesn’t offer camera or privacy protection, and it’s designed only for iPhone XR and iPhone 11. You can find a version for the iPhone 12 here.

3. ZAGG InvisibleShield Ultra Vision Guard Film

If you want a screen protector that’s easy to install, the ZAGG InvisibleShield smart film is worth considering. The film uses a wet-install process and adds tough durability to your screen. 

The screen protector has a protective eye-safe layer, which filters harmful blue light, and self-healing nano memory technology that heals minor scratches and dings. The protector is best for Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ phones, and works with any phone case.

4. UniqueMe 2 Pack Tempered Glass Privacy Screen Protector

The UniqueMe screen protector not only protects your screen from scratches or damage, but also protects your privacy through its tinted design. This means that anyone who isn’t directly in front of your screen won’t be able to see your phone’s display. 

An oleophobic coating is included for daily fingerprint resistance, and it has an optimized design for crystal-clear view. Plus, the screen protector comes with camera lens protectors, which you can attach to the rear snappers to safeguard them from damage.

The main downsides with this protector is that it’s designed for iPhone 11 Pro, it’s a bit pricier than other options, and not everyone wants the privacy guard feature.

5. JETech Screen Protector

The JETech screen protector comes in a pack of three tempered glass protectors, complete with a guide stick, dust removal stick, cleaning cloth, and installation instructions. 

The protector’s extremely high hardness makes it capable of resisting scratches. Plus, it’s dust-free, fingerprint-resistant, and inexpensive.

While the protector is designed for iPhone 6/6s/7/8 and SE 2020, it doesn’t cover the full screen owing to the round edge of these iPhones. It also lacks camera protection and privacy guard.

6. Skinomi TechSkin

The Galaxy S20 and S20+ are among the pricier Samsung flagship smartphones whose screens you wouldn’t want to see cracked or shattered. With the Skinomi TechSkin screen protector, you can keep your S20’s display free from tearing, scratches, and punctures.

Made from military-grade TPU material, the screen protector is not only flexible, but also claims to be self-healing, and comes with a 100 percent risk-free lifetime replacement warranty.

An extra protector is available in case you mess up while applying the protector on your phone’s screen.  Be sure to give it enough time to set before using the phone after installation.

7. amFilm Glass Screen Protector

The amFilm screen protector is made of tempered glass and designed for full-screen, edge-to-edge protection to protect your OnePlus 7 smartphone’s display from harm.

The protector is easy to install, and resistant to grease, fingerprints, and other smudges. It’s also highly durable, scratch resistant, and promises full compatibility with touchscreen sensitivity.

Unfortunately, the amFilm screen protector may not be compatible with many rugged cases.

What to Look for When Picking a Screen Protector for Your Phone

  • Protectivity: For better impact protection, we recommend going for a screen protector made of tempered glass or TPU material.
  • Compatibility: Get a screen protector that’s compatible with your phone’s shape, size, and model. Check the product description to find out which models the screen protector fits before buying.
  • Functionality: Some screen protector models add a layer of privacy, anti-glare or blue light reducing layer. Other protectors feature antimicrobial coatings that help reduce germ spread on the screen’s surface.
  • Installation/Application: Most screen protectors are adhesive on one side so you can stick it directly onto your phone’s display. 

Keep Your Phone’s Screen Pristine

The best screen protector acts as a shield for the most fragile part of your phone, keeping it scratch and crack free. If you have an iPhone, the Gorilla Glass may be tough enough to withstand drops, but you still need to buy a durable protective iPhone case to secure the back from other types of damage like dings, shock, and water.
