Why does my wallet address change when using MyBitcoinZ Wallet?

Because the wallet is what is called an HD wallet, or Hierarchical Deterministic based on BIP32 using 12 word seed phrase.
This wallet uses the seed phrase to generate many wallet addresses and their private keys.
It helps keep your transactions a little more private due to the constant changing addresses.
