  2. Photo and video record.

    To record or taking picture should be possible only with permission of the other person as well. If picture has been taken and shown in the picture media or gallery both person should be able to remove a picture of them they do not want to be taken. At the moment it can be removed only by the person who took the photo shot of the other person without the other person`s permission or his/her option to remove it.

  3. Sign in verification

    Your sign in verification is not working. My skype account has been hacked. A contact sent me a screen shot of the conversation I had with her, that I did not have, asking for money. In other words, she thought she was conversing with me and it was with someone hacking my account. I want two stage verification through my phone. You mention that you offer it. It has worked once or twice but mostly you do not come through.

  5. Disable Screen Sharing

    Please allow us to disable the screen sharing option completely like we are able to with camera and microphone. As in completely turn the feature off. I don't want to accidentally click the feature and have people seeing private windows or info

  6. Allow for select users to see your online status settings

    As stated in case #1466064127, there is no way to limit who in your contact list can see your online status. This should be adjustable so only people you select in your contact list can see your online statis.

  7. Allow the Microsft and Skype logon credentials to really be the same.

    Allow the Microsft and Skype logon credentials to really be the same. When I updated this on my MS account, Skype still made me use the old password, which I can't remembr, and I am only able to log on because ••••• keeps a record. Changing the password on the Skype website doesn't change it in the app. I also have a private student, who has spent the last HOUR AND A HALF trying to change his password so he can log on for a lesson over Skype, and he is having no luck either. Skype was really bad before,…

  9. Update Skype without Admin Access

    I should able to update my skype application without admin permission. As we are working in an organization we don't have admin access. Whenever we need to update it is difficult to call admin team everytime.

  13. 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:
    skype desktop app
    skype android app
    skype web
    skype linux app etc...
