In macOS Sierra, for some reasons, I would like to change my MAC address and I would like that this change survive a reboot.
How can I do this?

brew install spoof-mac
You can also install SpoofMAC with
pip, or directly with:
git clone git://github.com/feross/SpoofMAC.git cd SpoofMAC python setup.py install
Add a local.macspoof.plist file in /Library/LaunchDaemons:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <string>MacSpoof</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>/usr/local/bin/spoof-mac.py</string> <string>set</string> <string>ca:fe:ca:fe:ca:fe</string> <string>en4</string> </array> <key>RunAtLoad</key> <true/> </dict> </plist>
Adapt the interface name and address to your need then reboot.
Then load the launch daemon:
sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/local.macspoof.plist
P.S.: There is a similar question Change MAC address in OS X Yosemite but the question is not about permanent change and is only for Yosemite.
