  1. Suspend account

    Quick link button in app to suspend account after finding suspicious activity. I recently had someone use my credit and with auto-charge ran up several charges before I could find away to stop the re-charge. A quick suspend button from with app should suspend all activity including auto-charge until user can verify and reset account passwords etc

  4. Automatic authorization in Skype

    The way to enable automatic authorization in Skype version 8.42:
    Logout> Remember your account ... - Yes
    retains authorization for a short time, approximately 10 hours, and then at the entrance it is necessary to re-enter credentials.
    The request to the developers to make this authorization method reliable or add the "Automatic authorization enable / disable" switch to the Skype settings.

  6. Regular mail with the mark Skype for business

    The essence of the bug is that in search of a Skype suddenly appeared some accounts created on regular mail with the mark Skype for business. There are no such accounts in sight. Neither in Skype itself, nor in Office 365, nor in the provider @mail.ru itself did not create them.

    Big correspondence in the community about it:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/ru-ru/skype/forum/skacc--sksettings-sk_win10/unknown/f1c75dc3-1f5f-4be0-8b75-0574544a19a6?messageId=3680c325-6f0e-4ca5-a5fb-5af67fab6b9a

  11. Skype login forced me to use my hotmail login

    when asked by skype support chat to upload something on their FTP server, the system forced me to login using my hotmail account, when in fact, prior to this I had a skype username that was using a gmail account. I purposely set it up like this so my skype username account would not merge my contacts from my hotmail account. I only want the skype username account to at most have its own independent set of contacts. The chat person asked me to post this on this forum but they will also investigate how to decouple my hotmail account…

  19. Skype charging $18.40 for a call to a land line that would have only had a one off cost of $0.37 is inexcusable.

    In Australia, all government Institutions and most businesses have a 1300 number. When these numbers are called there is only A one-off charge of $0.37 but because Skype charges these calls at $0.39 per minute, what should have been only a $0.37 cost if I had used a landline Skype Charged me over $18 for the same call. Add to this that calls to mobiles in Australia are not free as advertised on Microsoft 365 accounts. This service is next to useless in Australia.

  20. Auto logout from Skype account

    I ran into a very terrible problem, namely, Skype is throwing out my account every day and I have to log in again by entering my login and password. Stupid tips like "clear the profile folder" do not help. The problem occurs on three different PCs with different access to the Internet, on one of them, for the test, you have installed pure Windows 10 without third-party software, and there is also auto-exit. The problem began after I uch. Skype record combined with account. Microsoft record.
    The problem occurs on all versions of Skype since 8, at the moment Skype…
