  1. Alert: Intrusion of privacy

    I was accidently invited in a group chat. I didn't noticed the invitation. So I hadn't refused it yet, but I also didn't accept it. And yet I was still able to see the content of their group chat. This is a huge intrusion of their privacy. Their is a famous Flemish saying by Tom Lenaerts "Waar zijn jullie mee bezig boys? Los het op!" Meaning: What the f*ck are you doing, boys? Fix it! Thank you. (Sorry for the mistakes in writing, I'm not a native English speaker)

  3. New privicy setting

    Allow users to automatically block unknown calls and messages. Set up a feature where only only contacts who are on the user's contact list are allowed to call them.

    Plus at a quick report button for unwanted spam messages and scam calls

  4. I moduli di recupero

    I moduli di recupero per recuperare un account bloccato con un'informazione di ripristino non più utilizzabile (un vecchio indirizzo mail), sono inutili!!! Ne avrò compilati almeno 200 in due anni!!! Non funzionano trovate un altro sistema, fanno soltanto perdere tempo. Sono 2 anni che tento di recuperare un account e non sono ancora riuscito!!!!

  5. "Active status" and "accessed time status" should be disabled.

    Active status and activated status should be disabled so as to maintain privacy.

  6. Screen Privacy

    I'd love to have a feature where I don't have to share my entire screen, but a selected application only.

  7. Ability to log out - requiring actual log in (not simply re-launch)

    Would like to see option to sign out (and require actual log in, at relaunch of application), while still retaining settings and account information.

  9. 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.…

  10. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add option for group creator to delete other people's messages

    Please add the option for group creators / admins to delete other people's messages. A lot of people post spam links in group chats and there is no way to delete them, even though I am the group owner!

  16. 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…

  18. 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?

  20. Private conversations in teams for up to 30 people

    Private conversations are only available so it seems on a one to one basis
