  1. untethering skype account from microsoft account and deleting it separately and clearing the history.

    I would like to be able to untether my skype account from my microsoft account and clear it and delete it completely because i am unable to clear my history of which contacts i have been in contact with, even if i have blocked and deleted them. When you go to the search bar you will still see mutual contacts to contacts that you have deleted and blocked and i would like to get rid of this feature. As seen in my conversation with a microsoft agent, reference number: 1012489451.

  2. Include the "delete chat history" function that used to exist of the classic skype

    The ability to delete your messages to prevent yourself and whoever you sent them to from ever seeing them again was (in my opinion) the best feature lost from the Classic Skype. Discord doesn't have this as a built in feature yet, but it is possible through a browser extension.

  4. to have admin options in skype like what's app

    hi . I think the lack of some options in skype are clear in regard to other applicaations. I mean when we create a group and share our screen we cant limitate our participents in sending the messages when we don't want them to send the message. I mean just admin can send the message or just the admin can delete the messages

  5. No need for admin right when updating skype on computer

    Once installed, skype frequently requires updating the software which requires admin right. This is very inconvenient as I have to ask the IT support authorize admin right to update my work computer.

  8. keeps getting spam by non-contact list accounts

    I keep getting spam with messages from non-contact list accounts. I already set my privacy account to not searchable, yet I received those messages everyday!

  10. blocking adverts

    When adverts appear in the Skype contacts list you should be able to block them, as you can unsolicited contacts.

  13. Full Reimbursement of fraudulent transactions

    I was a victim of a fraudulent subscription on my skype account. Microsoft has the policy to reimburse only the last 6 months. I think it would be fair in case such a situation happens to reimburse the total amount.

  16. Add Network Security endpoint section to Skype account and applications, Skype Web access websites

    Would be great to add Network Security endpoint section to Skype account and applications, Skype Web access websites.
    Important features: real-time single sign-on statistic - IP, geolocation, device type, possibility to link trusted devices to Skype account,
    geolocation filter for source network and IP. Unusual activity warning, password brute force attack and etc.

  17. Please add a feature to forget my login details after I sign out.

    At my office, sometimes we have to use another person's computer. After I sign out at the end of the day, they can easily sign back in the next day without requiring a password. Can't you add a feature to forget my login details from the windows 10 skype app? It's desperately needed.

  18. identity theft prevention

    Don't require identity-theft worthy data. ZIP code is used to verify credit card numbers. Birth date is used to verify medical records.

  19. Hide Skype name from search
