There is someone that I doubt that he uses my stolen phone so I want to make sure that the phone that he uses is mine or not by knowing the Wifi mac address of phone – to see if it's mine or not.

I have used iplogger before but all what it shows is ip address- Android version - browser - phone model-etc. I just wanna make sure before telling telling the police about this person.

I have already done tracking report, but they did nothing.

What can I do ?? The phone uses Android 5.

An IP logger captures the IP address and the browser user agent string, the browser user agent only contains information like phone model and browser, no uniquely identifying information like MAC addresses.

So no, this iplogger (or any other that uses similar techniques) cannot determine if the phone is actually your's, only if it is the same model, but thousands of that model are sold so that is not considered evidence.

  • is there anything can capture a mac address similar to IP logger ? – mina nageh May 20 '18 at 17:11
  • @minanageh No, the only way to obtain someone's mac address is to either be on the same network, or looking it up in their phone's info tab in the settings. – x13 May 21 '18 at 11:31

What you'd need for that is something that also supports ARP. You could try a tool like Fing, which does that:

As you can see in the second screenshot, Fing is able to tell the MAC address (at least of nearby devices). Some alternative apps can be found in my corresponding list.

  • this not what i mean ... he is not in the same network as me – mina nageh May 20 '18 at 17:10

    Then you are very much out of look – see How to get MAC address via IP at our security sister-site. – Izzy May 20 '18 at 20:05
