  1. Tengo un problema con mi nombre de usuario, ya que coincide con mi dirección de correo electrónico asociado a mi cuenta de Skype

    Modificar mi nombre de usuario por el problema nombrado aquí abajo:
    Me gustaría que se pudiera solucionar este error ya que el nombre de usuario no debería coincidir ni con el número de teléfono ni con el correo electrónico, ya que con esa finalidad se usa precisamente el nombre de usuario que es para que la gente te añada a través de él sin necesidad de dar más datos, pero si en mi caso coincide con mi dirección de correo electrónico es un error de la aplicación que me gustaría que lo modificarán para poder volver a usar mi cuenta.…

  2. notification about skype used

    Hi Skype Team! The skype account didn't have a feature of notification for mob and email for all the time its open and used in other device. I am not talking about the verification and notification like Facebooks and google. One time notification. Just add this feature as an optional for a person ease so if he r she can notify about their skype if it is rather used in office while they are not present. This action will take place when the skype is not completely sign out, only when it is closed.
    I am very grateful to you…

  4. Restrict access to 'gif' files to improve parental controls

    During this 'lockdown' period many grandparents are communicating with grandchildren online. Easy access to the internet via 'gif' files could be restricted to improve online safety.

  6. Locking meetings

    Hello. I do like Skype, but I would like to be able to "lock" my "meetings" in Skype, as I do in Zoom.

    This would add one more security protection.

    Thank you.

  7. Automatic video recording for set calls

    My ex and I are court ordered to use Skype for his supervised visits with our children and I'm suppose to record every call. It would be nice if there was a way that all of their calls for just that person was time stamped and recorded without me having to click record every time. Like if there was a way for it to start to record as soon as the call was answered from that particular person and was time stamped for court purposes. My children that are suppose to answer 5 & 7 so they are not suppose…

  8. KEEP my status the SAME way I set it last time I opened the application

    I set my status to "Invisible". Next time I open it, it is "Available". EVERY time. In the 15 years I have used Skype (since about 2003), YOU haven't done this, except for a span of time where you kept changing my status without my choice or permission. Then you left it alone, and now you are changing it again. No matter how I set it, you reset it. Repeatedly.

  10. STOP SPAM CALLS

    There is not enough security on the Skype account. Many spam calls have been coming on my Skype. They do not even show up in the caller history. in fact, there is no caller history at all. The caller was also very inappropriate and could not be blocked as the number was not showing up. In fact, I also temporarily deleted the account as the calls were continuous at random times. What can I do to avoid this?

  11. Private conversations in teams for up to 30 people

    Private conversations are only available so it seems on a one to one basis
    For security purposes it would be great if thsi could be expandend

  16. Make sure public discoverability is turned OFF by default for child accounts.

    I just set up a child email/Microsoft account for my daughter, which is required to enable family safety and security features on the PC. However it seems to actually increase the risks to her safety, because common-sense safety or security settings are OFF by default, and it takes many hours to discover how they can be enabled.

    For instance, although she has never used skype, a skype account was automatically created for her with the Microsoft account, and the "appear in search results" defaults to ON.

    As a result an unknown middle aged man has attempted to contact her via…
