How to Find Your Mac UDID for Beta Testing of Mac Apps

UDID (Unique Device Identifier) is a unique alphanumeric number to identify Apple devices. Just like IP address or MAC address, UDID is also device specific and unique. We covered the topic of finding the iPhone’s UDID earlier. Today, we will discuss how you can quickly find UDID of Mac.

Closing note

In the past, certain developers were caught sharing UDID of users to advertisers, and that led to a severe threat to privacy. After the issue, Apple had taken strict measure on third-party app developers by sending an ultimatum to stop sharing UDID or else their apps will find no place in App Store.
