This question already has an answer here:

Is there a way to get the MAC address of the Bluetooth device in my Mac? I am using a MacBook Pro running macOS High Sierra. I am looking mainly for macOS but the command could also be for another UNIX or Linux machine.

It should be the same as the one shown when Option clicking the Bluetooth icon in the status menus in the Menu Bar.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Execute the following command line in macOS:

system_profiler SPBluetoothDataType

The output will print details about the build-in Bluetooth device along with the MAC address. The output will also list the paired devices along with their MAC addresses.

  • Awesome! Works on my OSX machine. Is this linux and debian-friendly as well? – Aman Singh Sep 12 '18 at 9:25

    This is a macOS specific command. – Nimesh Neema Sep 12 '18 at 9:26
