  3. 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.

  5. Fraud--contact

    Hi Skype,
    der should definitly be a way to contact you to alert some fraud.
    Yesterday someone used my account to load money with a third party's credit card details. Unfortunately, there is no way to report such incidents. I have now reset the password and activated 2fa, too bad that there is no help from Microsoft.

  7. Quick access to Security Settings

    I changed the primary mail. But it is asking me to wait for a month to enter in to the security setting.

    It should be fast so that we can change the setting.

  8. Please Everyone beware.

    Everyone please be aware. If you sign out on Android and ask Skype to forget all your details on the device it works . BUT if you uninstall.and reinstall you will be prompted to log onto the account WITHOUT even. Needing any password.. YES THATS RIGHT. I have just been told this is a feature for "convenience" what. This means Microsoft are actually storing our passwords at there server.. 🤫🧐🙄🤔

  9. Security Hole Between Skype & Paypal

    Paypal doesn't require a password to authorise payment after an initial purchase. This is clearly a security flaw, unlocked phones get snatched out of hands all the time. Banks are mandating 2 step authorisation, meanwhile Skype & Paypal have left the door wide open to my bank account, "because it's convenient for users". Wake up guys, Bill Gates won't be happy when his phone gets snatched out of his hand...

  10. Message Spam filtering

    Screening of messages and profiles to detect spam (like in any good email provider).
    I don't care if it flags genuine messages from new accounts occasionally, as long as the spam isn't seen.

  12. Protocol Specification

    Please release your protocol specification and allow others to implement that. Public audit is the best way to increase security/privacy of your customers (if it is important for you)

  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. 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.

  16. 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,…

  19. 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.
