    Basically we connect to internet via a proxy server in our college and I was thinking is there any way they could identify me when I am connected to it. I will be using Kali in VMware (which I believe will spoof my Mac address)

    Firstly you must ensure your VM is configured to use a different MAC. [See instructions here.](https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workstation-Pro/16.0/com.vmware.ws.using.doc/GUID-5C55C285-79B0-404F-95A5-87F64C41E3DC.html) Kali will not configure this for you as macchanger does not work in VMware. Kali really offers no protection here.

    Secondly, your host machine also likely has a session with the proxy (through WPAD) when connected to your campus wifi. This negates much of your attempts to spoof the VM MAC unless you plan to also spoof your host MAC. You could firewall this off if necessary to permit only the VM to pass packets.

    Lastly, does the proxy require a login, or does the wifi require unique credentials? If so then you’re very much out of luck if you wish to remain anonymous.
