  2. login history activity from at least the past 12 months. not only the past 30 days.

    as of now there is no way to find out who have accessed our skype accounts without our permission in the past. all we can view is the last 30 days. which is frustrating.
    we need to view at least the last 12 months. so we assure that no one has ever accessed our accounts without our permission for a peace of mind.

    the ability to view and download all login history sessions ip's with the following.

    what type of skype app/method used to login:

  10. Message Spam filtering

    Screening of messages and profiles to detect spam (like in any good email provider).
    I don't care if it flags genuine messages from new accounts occasionally, as long as the spam isn't seen.

  13. DEAR SKYPE, GET RID OF RIDICULOUS SECURITY QUESTIONS, PLEASE

    DEAR SKYPE TEAM!

    TODAY I UNFORTUNATELY HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF TRYING TO REACTIVATE MY ACCOUNT WHICH HAS FOR SOME MYSTERIOUS REASON BEEN FLAGGED.
    AFTER APPROXIMATELY 30 MINUTES OF MY VALUABLE TIME WHICH I WILL NEVER GET BACK AND WHICH WAS AS ENJOYABLE AS SOMEONE PULLING YOUR HAIR OUT STRAND BY STRAND WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY SCRATCHING THE CHALKBOARD WITH YOUR OWN NAILS, I WAS TOLD BY YOUR AUTOMATED SYSTEM THAT I HAVE NOT PROVIDED YOU WITH ENOUGH INFO TO REACTIVATE MY ACCOUNT.
    INFO THAT I HAVE KINDLY PROVIDED YOU WITH INCLUDES SOME OF THE FOLLOWING (THE LIST IS NON-EXHAUSTIVE):
    MY DATE OF…

  14. Touch ID and Face ID Login

    Hi,
    Could you please make the option to require Touch ID or Face ID to log into Skype on iPhone and Android. This option is already available on many other apps. Thanks.

  15. Verification process to real people like FB and Twitter has

    Verification process of an Account, to stop fakes/pedophiles from taking advantage of underage girls since the beginning of Skype software creation.

    Make it possible to verify real celebrities with a blue check mark and make it possible to verify normal people with a green check mark and don't them change their name anymore once verified. The verified person needs to have a actual official website or other verified social media account linked to Skype to get verified and there also some other options to prove of course, it's just an idea.

    Why? Pedophiles/Fakes are using celebrity account names to pretend…

  16. reinstate the option of deleting old Im messages. The new version is ridiculous in that there isn't an easy way to do this

    Please reinstate the option to delete old conversations. I like to clear mine out often as I use the IM option only on my skype. These new updates of skype have made that almost impossible to do.

  17. Stop sharing my contacts with others without my permission

    Please immediately disable automatically sharing contact lists for the "People You May Know" feature, and create an explicit opt-in setting. Due to contact list asymmetry, accounts with few contacts can identify which other addresses their 1st degree contacts have in their contact list, without the 1st degree contact expressly sharing that information. This can have adverse effects in terms of unintended disclosure in private life and business contexts.

  18. Good job of sharing contacts!Now my clients and providers know each other. you'll bear responsibility for this privacy violation!

    A stupid ridiculous idea of sharing my contacts with everyone forces me to completely remove my skype account. And I am going to discuss this issue with my lawyer.

  19. Option to NOT SHARE contacts ASAP!

    Make an option to NOT share contacts ASAP and have it on by default. It's a violation of privacy to force users share their contacts with others without our consent. I DO NOT CONSENT

  20. Turn off Invasion of Privacy. Do not expose my contacts.

    You have exposed my contacts to all my other contacts. I also know who my contacts have been chatting to. Horrible invasion of privacy. Please turn this off or at least give us the option of our lives remaining private.

    To say I now feel awkward is an understatement. I am now party to personal information because of what you have exposed to me about people I know.

    You could have at least made this an option or warning when you add a contact that they will be exposed to all your other contacts. I clearly missed this and thought…
