  1. Include the "delete chat history" function that used to exist of the classic skype

    The ability to delete your messages to prevent yourself and whoever you sent them to from ever seeing them again was (in my opinion) the best feature lost from the Classic Skype. Discord doesn't have this as a built in feature yet, but it is possible through a browser extension.

  3. Make an option to scan the files you want to download in Skype from a Skype scanner

    After you click accept in Skype to download a file, make a virus scan called Skype Scanner to make sure the file doesn't have any harm, so you can be 100% complete safe, and make it an advanced scan so you make sure Skype is positive that you are 100% safe.

  6. 2 factor authentication

    I know that Skype already have a 2FA but its not really effective because people can still log in to your account if they know your password and your 2FA will not notify you to accept or deny the log in request.

    So i think its a good idea if the 2FA can be used to notify us and let us accept or deny our log in attempt that may not come from the real owner of the account.

  8. группы в черном списке (groups in black list)

    Я покидаю группу, меня добавляют обратно БЕЗ МОЕГО СОГЛАСИЯ.
    Минимум - не хватает настроек приватности как на многих ресурсах.
    Максимум - нужно наконец добавить возможность добавления ГРУПП в черный список.

    Ну вот не хочу я быть в группе, а людей добавлять в черный список не хочу - это не решение.

    I leave the group, they add me back WITHOUT MY CONSENT.
    Minimum - there are not enough privacy settings as on many resources.
    Maximum - you need to finally add the ability to add GROUPS to the black list.
    Well, I don’t want to be in the group, and I…

  10. If you have Skype on more than 1 device you should be able to turn off the one your not using

    Turn off on the devices you are not using it because I loan my phone or tablet out and I will go off when another one does

  17. My status changes itself!

    I put the status "invisible." But during a day it spontaneously and stubbornly changes to "online" itself , despite the fact that I do not exit Skype or exit - it does not matter .. almost every time I open a page on a windows 10 laptop or android phone, I have to change it to Invisibility from online though I didn't change it myself before. How is this possible? I have a feeling of the presence of another person who, without me knowing, who changes my settings. I'm right? How to avoid this problem or mistake? how to strengthen…

  19. Acabo de descubrir que después de bloquear un con

    Acabo de descubrir que después de bloquear un contacto los archivos que compartiste con esta persona siguen estando disponibles, creo que por seguridad de los usuarios, una vez que bloquees un contacto, las fotos, los archivos y cualquier otro elemento compartido debería bloquearse también. Personalmente me genera mucha desconfianza haber descubierto ese detalle
