  5. 2 factor authentication

    I know that Skype already have a 2FA but its not really effective because people can still log in to your account if they know your password and your 2FA will not notify you to accept or deny the log in request.

    So i think its a good idea if the 2FA can be used to notify us and let us accept or deny our log in attempt that may not come from the real owner of the account.

  6. 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).

  7. группы в черном списке (groups in black list)

    Я покидаю группу, меня добавляют обратно БЕЗ МОЕГО СОГЛАСИЯ.
    Минимум - не хватает настроек приватности как на многих ресурсах.
    Максимум - нужно наконец добавить возможность добавления ГРУПП в черный список.

    Ну вот не хочу я быть в группе, а людей добавлять в черный список не хочу - это не решение.

    I leave the group, they add me back WITHOUT MY CONSENT.
    Minimum - there are not enough privacy settings as on many resources.
    Maximum - you need to finally add the ability to add GROUPS to the black list.
    Well, I don’t want to be in the group, and I…

  13. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Please make a .txt Log file available in skype directory to save the in-meeting activity of Joining,removing and Leaving of participants.

    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.
