Why would my iPhone 11 suddenly show up on Fing Desktop as having two IP addresses? One is the normal IP address it always has but is now showing a +1 address of 02:00:00:00:00:00.

    In iOS 7 and later, if you ask/identify or recognize for the MAC address of an iOS device, the system returns the value 02:00:00:00:00:00. The IDFA Apples seem to have tried hard to get rid of the obvious ways for different apps to link activity between their users. You can check this post for more information: https://tinyurl.com/y6prgtbu
