  2. Add option for group creator to delete other people's messages

    Please add the option for group creators / admins to delete other people's messages. A lot of people post spam links in group chats and there is no way to delete them, even though I am the group owner!

  7. I would like the calls and message to not show up on my phone bill. I’m not comfortable with others knowing who I call within the bill.

    I wish that skype would just be listed on their own app history rather than going onto my phone bill. I’m in a family plan and it’s uncomfortable for others to see the exact numbers I’ve called. Rather than having free calls show up on the bill, I would rather have it stay onto the history option in the app.

  8. When I delete a contact, REALLY delete them from everywhere

    When we delete a contact, it must be deleted from 10 locations. Can't you just remove them permanently from everywhere? Privacy > View list, Right click and delete... Search history, Recommendation... The deleted contacts appear everywhere. EVEN IN CHAT EXPORT. I want some privacy here. I want to delete them from EVERYWHERE. Thank you!

  10. Deleting Messages From People Not in Your Contact List

    How do we delete messages from people we do not know nor want to be contacted by. The messages from them remain and we should be able to delete them.

  11. Please enable Skype uninstall. Thank you.

    Skype is ancient tech eating my battery/power and electricity user is paying for.
    It also slows down the system (look at cumulative CPU utilization for the Skype user does NOT even open first time yet).
    Thus MUST be able to uninstall or at least disable Skype.
    You were cool in 199x with IE4,IE5. Your time is over. Sorry.

  13. Skype caller id problem

    If caller id is hidden, the receiver of the call gets an "awkward" caller id on his phone. With me it is +82 44, so the mobile of the receiver interprets this as a call from Korea. As I have nothing to do with Korea, a lot my "receivers" do not want to pick up the phone as they suppose this is a scam call. Hide caller id should hide the complete info and thus display unknown caller, nothing more.
    Please investigate and solve as this is not working for me and I suppose for others neither.

  14. Make it possible to disable automatic status change.

    Impossibility to change this value allows other users to know what I'm doing. This is a violation of my privacy.
    I must have a possibility to control applications on my computer to avoid them share my private life. When Skype change my status to away after inactive period of time it violates the privacy policy.

  16. Phishing Notice

    Avoid phishing concerns by not holding accounts ransom unless a phone number is provided! "not saving phone numbers" is a myth that only the most innocent would trust.

  17. Make it possible to unlink legacy Skype accounts from Microsoft accounts.

    At the moment accidents where 2 people "share" the same account are "impossible" to fix. As a result, one can read another's conversations and never open Skype account with their own correct Microsoft email.

  18. STOP SPAM CALLS

    There is not enough security on the Skype account. Many spam calls have been coming on my Skype. They do not even show up in the caller history. in fact, there is no caller history at all. The caller was also very inappropriate and could not be blocked as the number was not showing up. In fact, I also temporarily deleted the account as the calls were continuous at random times. What can I do to avoid this?

  19. There needs to be a better verification process.

    The only secondary verification option is a form that takes days to process? I am in shock at such inefficiency. Do better.
