    Default Android device name

    Hello,

    I am wondering whether the default name of an Android device is unique to it and when can it change by itself. I know that users can change it on rooted phones, but I'm not interested in this scenario.
    The names look like "android-6b250ee3b45******". What can lead to change of the name? Possibly a mac change, OS upgrade, factory reset...

    You mean your phones name is changing? I'm not sure the exact scheme they use to name phones.. I'm sure it's just a generator that can make tons of names. I personally always changing the name so I can see the phone on my network.
