  1. Please introduce lock on iPhone so I can stay logged in and use Touch ID to open

    WhatsApp has a lock feature so it can’t be that hard to build :D

  4. Login with username and password

    Simplify login... It used to be a username and password. BRING THIS BACK! All the ridiculous hindrances I encounter, with their big brother style questions and details I consider mine and private must go! Simplify access to accounts and stop with the long, drawn out, pathetic security measures. All I did was get a new phone. Even this fact, is none of your business skype/microsoft!

  8. Please add a feature to forget my login details after I sign out.

    At my office, sometimes we have to use another person's computer. After I sign out at the end of the day, they can easily sign back in the next day without requiring a password. Can't you add a feature to forget my login details from the windows 10 skype app? It's desperately needed.

  10. I would liek the skype account separate from my hot.ail account .

    I would liek the skype account separate from my hot.ail account . I feel it will be more convenient to manage my privacy without affecting my email account eg close of Skype account does not need to close of my email and vice versa.

  12. Hide Skype name from search

    I would like to be able to hide my skype name from search, because I cannot change it, I do not want a new email, and it has my name in it.

  13. Turn off video record on Meet Now sessions

    Skype desperately needs to give video hosts on meet now a way to disable the video record feature for all participants. This is a serious breach of privacy.

    Just having members turn off their video is counter-intuitive when you are holding a VIDEO meeting, all participants are expected to have their video turned on.

    The lame excuse that participants can record meetings with another device just doesn't hold water. This needs forethought and a degree of setup. Having a record button front-and-centre for any participant is an open invitation and implied permission for them to record sessions. Without the 'record'…

  14. When you want to call your OWN cell phone, you should not be asked a PASSWORD. Im looking for my cell in the house but I forgot my password

    Im looking for my own cell phone because its lost in my house.
    I want to call it through Skype.
    Its asking me to enter my PASSWORD which I cannot remember
    I dont know why.
    I never had to enter my password fro calling phone numbers.
    Its DUMB
    Frustrating
    Wasting my time

  15. call a landline instead of trying to text a code message--texting does not work

    Like the banks are doing, call a landline instead of trying to text a code message to
    confirm phone # or passcodes etc...Land line does NOT accept text messages.

  18. Use Camera and Fingerprint to Log in Please!

    millions of people with no criminal intentions are going in circles verifying and getting locked out of their skype accounts. people need to make phone calls right away! not tomorrow or next week. we have important business and family calls to make. take out the frustration by allowing us to use our computer camera to recognize our faces and finger print recognition, please.
