  2. Meet Now Meeting Password

    Why can't I set a meeting password in Meet Now? if URL generated by Meet Now is leaked to a third party, they can access the chat and shared files with guest privileges. I understand the benefits of easy access, but I want to protect my privacy.

  3. My status changes itself!

    I put the status "invisible." But during a day it spontaneously and stubbornly changes to "online" itself , despite the fact that I do not exit Skype or exit - it does not matter .. almost every time I open a page on a windows 10 laptop or android phone, I have to change it to Invisibility from online though I didn't change it myself before. How is this possible? I have a feeling of the presence of another person who, without me knowing, who changes my settings. I'm right? How to avoid this problem or mistake? how to strengthen…

  5. You can make our account more secure...

    You have to give a notification when another person is trying to open my account. Ya I know I have a personal password but this would be better if you provide an another level of security

  9. Being able to track harassment call

    Hi,

    I've been victim of harassment call through Skype,people call me 3-4 times a day without me knowing the person who does that. I contacted my mobile provider and no help can be done unless i change number. Police told me its also very rare that people can get caught. You have to be able to know who's harassing me so i can deposit a file at the police station.

    Regards,

    Alexander Schroeder

  13. You need more security and support by a person for someone whose account has been hacked.

    Have a service where you can speak to person to have it rectified quickly. Not everyone can fix things quickly on a computer.

  14. Status

    I try to keep my status on invisible, but Skype resets me all the time to "available" That sort of defeats the purpose of asking if I want to remain invisible.

    When the recipient takes a screenshot of you without your permission, we should have the right to delete it.

  16. Block group

    It should be possible to block group. So that that group can not constantly keep adding you in.

  18. Clarify account recovery procedure and allow more attempts for sending the code

    When I get locked out of my account while having two factor authentication enabled, and I don't have my authenticator set up, I get only three attempts to get the code to recover it.

    Because of the two step verification, I need to use two codes, one sent via email and one sent via SMS. However, if one of the codes is not working, I need to restart the procedure, and then I can only get one code, and not the other.

    This is very frustrating, because I effectively get only one chance to recover my account in 24 hours.

  20. A toggle switch to disable Skype's recording feature

    I teach on Skype a lot, and prefer that my sessions NOT be recorded by my students, because these sessions are between the student and I, and no one else. Forwarding such lessons once they are recorded is too easy! I would like to see some kind of option where >I< can prevent the other party from recording a Skype video call. Thank you.
