  1. Block all contact request

    Please make it possible to block all contact request. I'm being swamped with 5-10 spam contact requests per day. I don't want to receive any contact requests at all.

  2. En privant ses utilisteurs d'avoir la possibilité de dénoncer vraiment une escroquerie Skype est complice des escrocs

    Skype rste en retrait face aux escrocs en ne proposant qu'une option de blocage qui effectivement elle permet de bloquer le compte de l'arnaqueur, ne permet pas de décrire ce qui s'est passé en vue d'engager une enquête approfondie.
    En ça Skype laisse un champ libre aux arnaqueurs. D'ailleurs, La question du nombre de victimes via skype n'a plus de raison d'être tellement le phénomène est important de nos jours.
    ce phénomène particulièrement inquiétant permet à des personnes peu scrupuleuses de s’enrichir en harcelant la vie de certains internautes.
    Ce type de chantage consiste en effet à séduire une personne…

  3. I am requesting Skype add a setting for recognizing a VPN and allowing calls to be completed without having to disable the VPN.

    Skype must create an option setting to allow VPN to work. If I have to disable my security to make a phone call the whole concept is worthless.

    I have had Skype and VPN compatible on my laptop previously and now I'm being told I HAVE to turn it off to use Skype. What kind of security is that?

  4. Skype is apparently wide open for spam

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/forum/all/spam-in-skype/6241abf0-85af-4a20-a054-c9b4701f0775

    Skype is allowing bots to send messages or contacts requests. It is clearly spam, and I'm sure the Skype team has it registered.

    This security breach is serious.

    Please advise how to:


    1. Only allow chats from contacts or

    2. Block chats from non-contacts +

    3. Stop the security issue with chat/contact requests from bots

    Thanks.

  5. I don’t want people to be able to message me, just because they have my email address

    It means that spam gets through on my device, which is really annoying. On the brink of deleting the app from my phone. If someone is not on my contact list, they have no business writing me messages. End of story.

  6. transaction references between Skype account and bank transaction

    for ease of reconciliation & easily identify fraudulent act, I would suggest to have common reference number with the bank transaction.

  9. Disconnecting VPN to use SKYPE

    Skype support tells me I now have to disconnect from my VPN to use Skype. They say for their security, but it is giving up my privacy on my computer, for tracking! I have been using Skype and VPN for years, long before Microsoft purchased it. Now Microsoft wants to gain more access. Is this what the community sees as a positive move. This just started this last week, at least with my Skype and VPN.

  12. Update of Skype for Mac without administrator login

    Skype for Mac repeatedly requests administrator authentification for updates. Google Chrome and many other programs don't need this. Please fix.

  14. We should allow incoming calls from anyone , even if they are not in your contacts.

    People sometimes get online language lessons and it's really hard for them to allow calls from their tutor.

  15. Signing in always requires password option

    Please reinstate the sign in always requires a password for security as an option. Every time I sign out I have to tell Skype to forget my settings! Then when I sign in again reset them.
