iOS 14 Private Network feature

With the launch of iOS 14 Apple incorporated a new feature allowing the use of private Wi-Fi MAC addresses. This feature allows you to randomize your MAC address. If this feature is turned on it will also prevent you from being able to access the WREN. To check whether or not your device meets compliance, the registered MAC address of your device is saved and matched to your profile in Intune. If the private address is enabled your MAC address will not match and you will not be given access.

How to ensure that you have private network turned off:

  1. Open the settings app, then select Wi-Fi.
  2. Tap the information button next to the network.
  3. Scroll down to Private Address and turn this setting off.
