  1. Please provide a option to find out how many devices are linked with a Skype account.

    I am using Skype for almost 6/7 months and have logged into 5-6 devices at my work place but currently I don’t remember that in which devices I have been using my Skype so I think it will be great to find out how many devices are active and using my Skype.

  2. Fix or remove "Less passwords. Adding WAM support to Windows 10." Allow logging out of ALL accounts with a click.

    MODIFY OR ELIMINATE THIS FEATURE: "Less passwords. Adding WAM support to Windows 10 so you can switch between multiple accounts without a prompt to enter a password every time."

    The way it is set up now in Windows 10 YOU CANNOT LOG OUT OF ALL ACCOUNTS. One account always appears and logs in with a click. There is no easy way to disable that so that no account appears and logs in with a click. All of the work arounds are cumbersome and inconvenient.

    LET THE USER DECIDE WITH A CLICK if they want an account to stay logged in…

  4. Give users sole control over their active status

    Give users sole control over their active status, automatic updates can still be an option. However the current system changes the status erroneously far too often, simply allowing the user to decide whether they are active or away (permanently) would completely mitigate this issue.

  6. VPN

    VPN should show as "ACTIVE" from my call screen, or otherwise show the general location of my IP address, that way if the VPN happens to drop or the IP Address otherwise changes since the last call was made, I know and can take action accordingly.

  7. Security protocols

    Please do not lock an account ever time a person is logging from a different country, some of us travel a lot and have Microsoft not as their first account, but one that holds special or old information, but not for everyday use. Why don’t you provide a phone call verification like some providers Apple to verify your new access on new equipment or location.

  8. Convert Legacy Skype Names to Default Generic ID

    Let us convert our Legacy Skype Name to the current naming scheme which is much more generic and secure, in comparision to potentially compromised Legacy Skype Names.

  10. Remove 'Last seen..' & adjust time before status changes to 'Away'.

    The ability to remove and/or change the time elapsed before your status automatically changes to 'Away' or 'last seen..'

    These options were available in previous versions of Skype so I assume they were removed accidentally because only a colossal moron would think it's a good idea to 'remove' privacy options in this day and age.

    Generally people want MORE privacy options, not less.

  11. See who is trying to connect with me

    User Story / Pain:
    When someone is trying to connect with me on Skype, I need to check who it is in order to decide whether to accept the connection or not. Currently I find no obvious way to do that.

    Feature Suggestion:
    Allow the receiver of a contact request be able to see the senders info and to initiate a chat with them as if they we were already contacts. That way the receiver can more easily verify the senders identity, thus avoid scammers / phishing while accepting legitimate connections.

    Rationale:
    By sending me a contact request, they have…

  13. [VIDEO RECORDING] - [SCREEN RECORDING]

    Rather than having just the ability to take screenshots, the ability to take screen recordings would be magnificent.
