  3. Unlinking Skype

    Why isn't there a way to unlink my Skype account from the Microsoft account already? This entire feature is extremely anti-user friendly since plenty of people want to either delete Skype or put Skype on a totally different Microsoft account. Whether it's because we just have zero need to use Skype, or we may feel as if a brand new account can become a vulnerability, we should always have the ability to unlink and delete our Skype accounts without deleting our Microsoft account.

  4. The ability to delete phone call or chat history

    With emails I am able to delete any or all conversations I have had. I would like to see an option that would allow erasure of any or all phone call history and/or chats

  5. Limit functionality for kids

    Is there a way to limit the following for kids accounts (via the existing parental controls):


    • search for people

    • add contacts without parental approval

    • take photos/videos of others without the other's consent

    I have set them up so that they are not visible/searchable (which works well) but there appears to be no controls to limit the above (other than parental hovering).

  11. Webcam privacy

    There should be an option for Webcam as if the person who doesn't want to be seen in camera can adjust the Webcam settings to not be seen (his/her camera remains close) but only after he/she opens the camera option during the call.

  14. Unknowns should not able to call, until i accept their request

    Person who have never chatted with me, and sending a request by just a simple hii!, should not be able to call me until and unless i have accepted the request.

    Today what i face is:

    Please make a .txt Log file available in one of skype directory to save the in-meeting activity of Joining , removing and Leaving of participants so that we know who is removing whom and at what time. The Chat window only has the info on who joined and when. Also Guest:xxxxxxxxxxx accounts should not be allowed to join large meetings without proper name and profile pictures.

  16. 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!

  17. NO Unlink button - Security breach!!

    Hello there,

    There seem to be already few suggestions made on this, but pleease read this until the end and PLEASE create an "unlink" button!! How can Microsoft have no unlink button for the accounts?

    I've recently have had issues that made me change the passwords for my Hotmail and skype or other Microsoft accounts, which were having different recovery email addresses. I have changed my password 5 times in 3 days, because it would let me sign in.

    I have spoken to an agent from the technical support and have told me that there is an automatic link/merge of…

  18. 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.
