  1. Scurity? Automatically logging in???

    So although Skype 8 is inferior in any other aspect at least I read everywhere it was very secure. So I tried it and the surprise. Exiting Skype doesn't log you out - just by pressing the Skype icon again it logs automatically in. LMAO

    How is this more secure product that previous Skype versions?! It's not. I need to manually logoff every time and not only logoff but logoff and forget sign in details. LMAO

  2. unknown

    SPAMMERS have started using a +000000 number that comes up "UNKNOWN PERSON". There is no way for me to block this type of call without limiting all incoming calls only to contacts. Please provide a way to block this type of call or at least send it directly to voicemail and not allow it to ring.

  6. Turn off last seen

    Please provide the option to turn off last seen. People should have the option to have privacy.

  8. Automatically sign out when shutdown Computer

    I would like to request for option "Automatically sign out when shutdown Computer". Previously, Skype(without Microsoft) has this option.

  10. I don't like the sign in screen that does NOT require a password! Anyone can sign in to my account on my pc, how is that a good thing??

    What happened to the password on the sign in screen?? Anyone can sign into my account with one click....this is not good, no privacy. Might have to dump skype.

  12. Give option to user to hide message previews from sidebar - Privacy

    The user must be able to hide his message preview from sidebar. We do not want anyone who is approaching our sceen to be able to read the last sentence of a conversation with another person. It is a matter of privacy!

  14. Skype needs a huge improvements in privacy and integrety protection settings

    GDPR stipulates that no Personal User data should be collected, leaked, displayed, transferred, processed and so on.

    Any processing, collection, displaying of personal user data is illegal if there's an alternative way, or a less intrusive way to solve the task for whatever the reason was for collecting or processing said personal information.

    GDPR also stipulates that unless Microsoft has a significant business based reason for collecting and processing any personal data, the benefits for the user must outweigh the privacy and integrity violation of said personal data.

    Everything in Skype is Personal Data according to the definition in GDPR.

  15. Delete conversations means delete, not hide!

    So, the way that I have found this to work is that when I actually want to DELETE a conversation, somehow, after some time, it pops back again. That is not what should happen. I want to be able to get rid of conversations that are no longer of use for me, or I just don't want to remember some, or whatever reason.

    Add this option and, among a few others that should be there by default, at least on a PC (yeah, you got me, I mean KEY SHORTCUTS) and I most definitely guarantee to you that users will…

    Let user delete and remove message or entire chat from all devices from one device.
