  4. Reduce or Eliminate Security Alerts for VPN users

    It used to be the case that account security alerts (for Skype and any other App requiring Microsoft account signin) could be ignored if 'this was you'. No longer. As a VPN user based in Hong Kong and China, I now spend way too much time waiting for verification codes and the frequency of such alerts seems to be increasing. Surely, given Microsoft's involvement in AI, it isn't too much to ask for an algorithm that recognizes VPN usage when users routinely hop countries and continents in seconds.

    I'm not a hacker but a journalist that writes on security and…

  8. View Call History within the Android App.

    Please make available the call history within the app, without having to login to the website as this is very inconvenient and annoying!

  11. iphone skype for china

    due to china's policy (Internet telephony is forbidden),chinese apple user can not download skype from app sotre for a long time. implore skype team for china can provide a skype version that remove the function of phone calls,call function is not what everyone needs ,China's WeChat and QQ, voice and video call quality is bad, but Skype in China can provide high-definition voice and video calls, unfortunately, Chinese Apple users can not download Skype from the Apple store. Really want Skype in China App Store to resume downloading

  13. Locked account

    My account has been locked for 3 weeks (don`t know the exact reason). I have filled special form to unlock it, moreover I contacted live support for 4 times, and they all speak the same - there is a high volume of requests, please wait, your request is in a priority list, they will contact you in 24 hours.. But still nothing. It is SKYPE policy, that they lock accounts for nothing, it is SKYPE problem, that workers have high volume of requests, so why do users have to suffer from that? Double the workers, who deal with requests, change…

  16. Unlink skype/microsoft account

    Dear Microsoft, Are you really that stupid that you have to force people to link their skype to their Microsoft accounts. Things were fine before you did that!. Please allow us to unlink the accounts. You're ruining peoples lives. A lot of people are very upset with you about this issue and it needs to be taken care of as a priority. No more stupid updates you broke what wasn't broken and that was the unlink feature. Taking it away was a dumb move on your part. Bring it back or we will revolt against Microsoft or you'll lose millions…

  19. delinking/demerging skype and hotmail accounts

    the whole process is ridicoulous, sort it out. Cannot even delete the account and recreate one after 60 days because Microsoft has its own definition of the word delete. It makes a mockery of even trying to use Microsoft products for business purposes. totally shambolic
