  1. Phishing Notice

    Avoid phishing concerns by not holding accounts ransom unless a phone number is provided! "not saving phone numbers" is a myth that only the most innocent would trust.

  2. Make it possible to unlink legacy Skype accounts from Microsoft accounts.

    At the moment accidents where 2 people "share" the same account are "impossible" to fix. As a result, one can read another's conversations and never open Skype account with their own correct Microsoft email.

  3. STOP SPAM CALLS

    There is not enough security on the Skype account. Many spam calls have been coming on my Skype. They do not even show up in the caller history. in fact, there is no caller history at all. The caller was also very inappropriate and could not be blocked as the number was not showing up. In fact, I also temporarily deleted the account as the calls were continuous at random times. What can I do to avoid this?

  4. There needs to be a better verification process.

    The only secondary verification option is a form that takes days to process? I am in shock at such inefficiency. Do better.

  14. Local chat PIN lock

    Hi. I want to add "PIN lock" function to restrict unwanted access to dedicated chats after login was done. Pincode must be entered each time pin-protected chat accessed (switched from another chat or window restored from minimized), also all pop-up notification from these chats must not show message contents.

  16. why not use a 4 to 6 digit number password prompt for if you when aways for a certain time as u stay log in.

    This is for hotmail, outlook and skype, all these app should ask for a digit password if you stay aways for a certain time couple minutes, nothing intrusive but to prevent someone who gain acces to youre pc while youre are away and connect into these app and web page and check all our personal stuff, you should be promt to enter the digit password after a certain time, and some of the folder should have same option to put an extra password to access them if we want to. this is too easy someone can access to you're computer…

  18. Find some way to verify credit cards as mine was used illegally.

    Verify the card being used belongs to the person that is using it. My debit card was compromised by Skype. Bank told me my call was not the only one they had received regarding compromised cards.
