SSL/Public Wifi Certificates/Mac Address?

If I connect to a public wifi that immediately pops up a sign in page, does signing in place a certificate on my phone that routes through a proxy? Thus making https readable? Another query: there is a company provider that restricts wifi access until you submit your devices MAC address for them to grant permission to. Does this give them any power aside from identifying your device in network traffic?

  • Signing into a public wifi does not necessarily route you through a proxy. When a company requires your MAC address, that only identifies your device, so they can block any unknown device.
