  1. Deleting Skype Account Immediately as Option for Users

  4. Real-name/ ID registration

    I've been bugging by lots of fake accounts, some of them even sent out threats but without real-name/ID registration it is impossible to locate these people. I suggest to set all accounts can only be bound to a real ID number so to stop skype becoming a criminal tool.
    Once we report such account, we hope skype team will have content reviewer to review the conversation and work with local police department to get those who are sitting behind the screens and kept doing illegal things.

  5. Username change/deletion

    I understand that Skype got migrated to Microsoft and they are now connected and/or basically the same. But for me as an EU citizen it is concerning that as a result of this migration I cannot manage my data properly, it feels like I am not provided the means to handle my own personal information correctly corresponding to privacy laws. Here is the reason and the example:

    Your Skype account cannot be split from your MS account, that is a fact. Also, the Skype username chosen at registration cannot be changed. You can create another MS account + username to…

  6. Being able to delete a skype account only, a request for mental illness survivors.

    Those with mental illness that see Skype as a trigger for trauma doesn't want their accounts to exist. Being unable to delete the Skype account prevents peace of mind for thousands of users who don't want to use this service anymore.

  7. 1. Ich habe die deutsche Sprache eingestellt, wieso erscheint diese hier nicht ?

    Das Umschalten auf die jeweilige Sprache, trotz vorheriger Einstellung funktioniert nicht oder stark verzögert.
    Wieso werden hier überwiegend englische Begriffe gewählt, was jene Leute ausgrenzt, die diese Sprache nicht beherrschen.
    Ich kann nirgends einen Hinweis finden, ob es in einer Gesprächsrunde mit verschiedenen internationalen Teilnehmern, eine automatische Übersetzung gibt, die der jeweilige Teilnehmer bei sich eingestellt hat.

  11. Make Skype manager more user friendly

    Redesign of how the SIP group admin and clear concise documentation needed regarding working examples.

    SIP Group admin can not have inbound calls and this is not well known.

    Their account seems to be limited to managing the other user's features and such but call routing is known to be a non-event or troublesome.

    To compound this issue this forces for example a SOHO user to set up another account just for this purpose.

    Risking instant security breach if any matching details are sighted.

    How dear boffins at MS is that helpful and why is it in all this time…

  19. Unlink Microsoft and Skype Accounts

    Currently, legacy Skype Usernames are hard linked to Microsoft Usernames. If you delete your Skype Account, it deletes your Microsoft Account. As a result, even Microsoft/Skype Support is literally unable to change a Skype Username for extenuating circumstances

    If Microsoft auto-generates a Skype name for your Microsoft Account, you must keep it. If your child makes a silly Skype name on your Microsoft Account, you're stuck with it. In my case, I am a transgender male and beginning at age 16-and for a decade-I used a username that was "FirstMiddle" of my pre-transition name for nearly every only app with…

  20. Change or Reset Skype Name

    So you guys know people get married, divorce, change their names, interests lose relevance, etc. right?

    For those of us who have been on Skype since before the GUID was used for your Skype name we are stuck with whatever that name we set was, not only isn't that my name anymore but as a trans woman it's really important to me not to be running into my old name constantly. Unfortunately, you can't let me rename it, nor can you reset it so I get a generic GUID like you currently use. And since I can't close my Skype…
