  3. Allow user to mute calls between certain times.

    I don't want receive calls in the middle of the night. The only option I can see is to delete skype.

  4. 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

  5. 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):

  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. Now that you have fixed Blocking.. You need to have/ADD the option of NOT allowing Blocked or Private Numbers 2📞call

    Now that you have fixed Blocking.. You need to have/ADD the option of NOT allowing Blocked or Private Numbers 2📞call
    Also for those of us who pay to have a private number and yearly subscription, we should have SMS free of change.

  9. 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...

  10. Send reminders to users who have a security email different from their skype email.

    Send reminders to users who have a security email different from their skype email. It can save them from the 30-day waiting time to change it when needed!

  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.

  13. 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.

  16. Hide the Skype Ids/Contact Details on Secondary Skype Accounts

    As a business owner, Please solve this issue. Skype will earn and owners will be in peace of mind. I run an online tuition academy, I hire teachers and they teach my students. sometimes the teachers steal the ids of students and contact them from there personnel skype id and ask them to take the tuition directly from them..
    I would like to request Skype to allow Bussiness Skype Owners to make the secondary skype ids, which can be assign to employees. These skype ids should have certain limitations like the user (teacher) of it cannot see the contacts details/skype…

  17. 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…
