WiFi working without Mac address

Hi guys!


The most weird thing has happened. I recently got an M5 (E5633) with Android 5.0 lollipop. After I upgraded it to 6.0 I discovered that, though WiFi is working fine and my phone shows a WiFi MAC address in the settings menu..when I check with WiFi inspector or any other wifi-viewing app It says my mac address is 02:00:00:00:00:00.


Should I be concerned about this? Could this bring up future Internet security risks?

Appreciate your help!
