  2. untethering skype account from microsoft account and deleting it separately and clearing the history.

    I would like to be able to untether my skype account from my microsoft account and clear it and delete it completely because i am unable to clear my history of which contacts i have been in contact with, even if i have blocked and deleted them. When you go to the search bar you will still see mutual contacts to contacts that you have deleted and blocked and i would like to get rid of this feature. As seen in my conversation with a microsoft agent, reference number: 1012489451.

  4. Class Action Lawsuit pending

    GDPR Class Action Lawsuit Pending against Skype and Microsoft for denial of right to be forgotten and frustration of Chat History removal. Release of new software updates with same being fully tested or ready for launch, that is not having the same capabilities for Private Data removal as previous versions. These tech ******** are constantly invading people privacy and constantly loop holing the legislated system. Fines are no longer adequate, owners and staff must be prosecuted and jailed for such constant Tort of Interference. Private companies can no longer be allowed to manipulate the law in such ways.

  12. You can make our account more secure...

    You have to give a notification when another person is trying to open my account. Ya I know I have a personal password but this would be better if you provide an another level of security

  15. Remove People Search History in all versions of Skype

    Please provide the option to the user to delete all the search people history from history settings. It will provide the user to have better privacy and secured platform.

  17. Active Status

    an option to disable wether or not friends can see your active status should be available for privacy reasons. goolge hangouts offers this, there’s no reason why skype can’t either.

  20. Clarify account recovery procedure and allow more attempts for sending the code

    When I get locked out of my account while having two factor authentication enabled, and I don't have my authenticator set up, I get only three attempts to get the code to recover it.

    Because of the two step verification, I need to use two codes, one sent via email and one sent via SMS. However, if one of the codes is not working, I need to restart the procedure, and then I can only get one code, and not the other.

    This is very frustrating, because I effectively get only one chance to recover my account in 24 hours.
