  1. Sign out

    Can you guys make it easier to find the sign out button in the Skype app for iPad? I looked for it for 30 minutes and I still didn’t find it. At this point I am starting to question my intelligence.

  7. Unlink skype accounts from old email addresses

    My skype account is linked to my husbands microsoft account and if he changes his password I am locked out of Skype and visa-versa. Not sure how this has happened but it appears that it is not straightforward to fix. We need to be able to unlink skype accounts from old email addresses easily in the user profile for skype.

  10. The biggest reason we finally gave up skype, including many fans for years.....

    Dear Developers,

    The fact that each newly created skype account can not created or named by an unique is really not convenient for us to use.

    This is really what we need, and a large number of my friends ever compained about it. You may know in China, nearly everyone in the 1.5billion people uses wechat, each account of which has a unique ID which is permanent. Why can't we do like that to make it more handy to use?

    Please do make it possible to use an unique ID which can be set by user when sighing up. This…

  12. Provide access to MacOs Keychain when signing in

    Currently, the sign-in fields for Skype account does not provide access to the MacOS Keychain. It's therefore impossible to create large random passwords and then retrieve them for use with the account.

  13. Merge skype accounts.

    It's essential and not that hard. Sort it out.
    So many of us have been with skype for so long, you can't just create a microsoft version and make it impossible to merge them
    Serious sign-in issues

  14. Phone number notations in billing

    Prior & currently leased phone numbers in billing are very useful for personal & business record keeping years later if needed along with criminal prosecutions. Its in billing, which means it is exclusive to the user. It is also helpful for users to find their phone number without having to mouse through other areas.

    Email provided is not associated with my personal info. I dedicated 2 hrs to provide this feedback & resolve this with online support who has been telling you about this needed feature for a while.

    Customers have little time to coddle Corp HQ in WA state…

  15. UNuser friendly at account set up

    Please tell senior management what an awful time I've had trying to help my inlaws set up Skype. It has been so stressful. I've been helping them remotely and it's very difficult. They are technophobic and over 70. I'm extremely patient, but Skype hasn't been good enough here. I couldn't get my query resolved even after accessioning online live chat help with your own advisers. The adviser couldn't find the account, and did not have authorisation to do anything helpful like unlock it. the language on log in pages are not user friendly. It needs to be much plainer for…
