  2. Security email does not match skype email

    The email listed on my account as my primary (and only) skype email did not match the one that microsoft had on file as my security recovery email. There was no way for me to know this, and I had to contact customer service and have them walk me through the steps to fix the issue.

  11. 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.

  12. Confused, thank you!

    I was in China used free vpn to get contact with skype support and accepted remote controll, but the stuff wrote dev.microsoft.com afterwards. I do not know if there were any corelation - later, hacker came into my computer via microsoft acount, i could not call for those service I payed, later, I could not call to skype contacts, later my skype was locked, I could not logg in.
    I found also skype translator was in my contacts and Boot support also in my skype-none of them were verified by microsoft, I do not know how these happened.
    and all…

  16. 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!
