  1. Please create an option for deleting the search history in skype for names searched to not pop-up for privacy issues, thank you.

    This option will let our private searched or contacted person be hidden and not to be found out just by looking into the search results even after the chat and call history is deleted.

  2. Permanently removing all aspects of unwanted contacts

    Despite blocking someone, or removing them from the view list, many would benefit from an optional feature allowing you to remove a contact from all areas of the platform. Currently when you completely remove someone they still appear when you click in the search bar under the people list. Being able to make it as if your account had never associated with another due to personal reasons would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Private conversations in teams for up to 30 people

    Private conversations are only available so it seems on a one to one basis
    For security purposes it would be great if thsi could be expandend

  5. Webcam privacy

    There should be an option for Webcam as if the person who doesn't want to be seen in camera can adjust the Webcam settings to not be seen (his/her camera remains close) but only after he/she opens the camera option during the call.

  9. Parental administration access

    My 15yr old daughter has Autism and loves to have the independence to use Skype to talk to her school friends and other family members. She is unaware of the social dangers that platforms like Skype can pose and we have recently been aware that she has been using the search facility to try and find friends but has ended up trying to contact random Skype members. I think that it would be good for parents to have some sort of password protected administration access to allow them to create a contact list for their child so that the child…

  11. This is about privacy

    I would like the function with privacy that can block the other party being able to start a recording at all. I know we can see if its being recorded but i would like the option of being able to block it in the first place. Many of us need skype more than ever and privacy is paramount. IF this can happen ASAP please

  12. Make account recovery a "human in the loop" action.

    The account recovery app assumes records are available on use years in the past. *** u me precludes recovery otherwise. Either put a person in the loop, or allow failed recovery attempts to be resolved by a person in the loop.

    All automatic fails to meet (this) customer needs.

  13. Make sure public discoverability is turned OFF by default for child accounts.

    I just set up a child email/Microsoft account for my daughter, which is required to enable family safety and security features on the PC. However it seems to actually increase the risks to her safety, because common-sense safety or security settings are OFF by default, and it takes many hours to discover how they can be enabled.

    For instance, although she has never used skype, a skype account was automatically created for her with the Microsoft account, and the "appear in search results" defaults to ON.

    As a result an unknown middle aged man has attempted to contact her via…

  14. Unknowns should not able to call, until i accept their request

    Person who have never chatted with me, and sending a request by just a simple hii!, should not be able to call me until and unless i have accepted the request.

    I was doing some office work (as this is lockdown time, so wfh is the only way). I got a random hi from a person named Deepak D.
    I was wondering who could it be, just then it strike in my mind, that there is one deepak in my office, this might be tge same one. Before my mind could get into any conclusion,…

  16. Status changing by itself often

    Hello,
    I have updated to your new update the other day and the issue I have reported many times is still happening. Under no circumstances should the status change from “Invisible” to “Online” without the account holder doing it themselves. Please fix this bug so the status won’t change for any reason. Thanks

  17. Ruolo amministratore per chat di gruppo - Managing role for group chat

    Sarebbe interessante poter scegliere se la chat di gruppo abbia un'amministratore (che sia l'unico che possa avviare la chiamata e che una volta che decida di chiuderla per tutti, nessun altro possa rientrarci) - It would be interesting to be able to choose if the group chat has an administrator (who is the only one who can start the call and that once he decides to close it for all, no one else can return it)

  20. Excesivo tiempo de espera

    Hola mi sugerencia es que deben acortar el tirmpo de esperar para verificar una información, 30 dias es excesivo y mas para una persona que lo necesita para estar en comunicación constante. A demas, colocar como requisito en el formulario la antigua clave cuando quiero cambiar el correo porque no se la clave para que me llegue el codigo de seguridad. Deben cambiar un poco eso
