  1. 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.

  9. I was

    I was given this link not for sharing ideas but for feedback about the service I am very upset about. The virtual helper is not able to give an answer and to help enter the account which I have not lost data for. I know both my login and password and I do not understand why it is impossible just to send me a code of confirmation without getting to my computer remotely. If the virtual helper tried to listen to the interlocutor it would be just great for everyone.

  12. Status switching itself from "Invisible" to "Active"

    Whenever I set my status "Invisible", It occasionally changes to "Active" online status itself. Even I am logged in and while using Skype, status changes to visible. It is really annoying. I want Skype to keep my status preferences and Save it. It is kind of Bug. Please consider this feedback and improve Status Settings!

  13. NO Unlink button - Security breach!!

    Hello there,

    There seem to be already few suggestions made on this, but pleease read this until the end and PLEASE create an "unlink" button!! How can Microsoft have no unlink button for the accounts?

    I've recently have had issues that made me change the passwords for my Hotmail and skype or other Microsoft accounts, which were having different recovery email addresses. I have changed my password 5 times in 3 days, because it would let me sign in.

    I have spoken to an agent from the technical support and have told me that there is an automatic link/merge of…

  14. Skype for Belgium (number)

    Hi it would be nice to get partnership with Belgian operators for having a Skype number in Belgium.
    https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_blanche
    This link explain what is a zone without network.
    Also having an intelligent external forwarding system to Skype. Ie : forwarding from any number to the Skype number when losing signal. Those zones have mostly internet in private houses for private or professional use. And should be able to work easily.
    Of course each providers has its own strategy to block or impeach voip calls instead of traditionnal network. To me it is a security imperative and should be democratically priced.

  16. 20th century security verification process. Fail!

    I live in Australia and am visiting Japan. Skypes ancient security verification process has stopped me from using the program. Fail! I keep hearing that it's all in the interest of account protection. No other chat program has this problem and if they did they use a better, faster system to verify.
    I have no choice but to use another chat program. I won't be buying Skype credit in the future.

  20. Password Setting

    Password Setting
    I would appreciate, way to have the setting to the password and password recovery.

( Allowing people to chose willingly to whether they want to have a variety of numbers, letters, symbols or not. as well as using old or what the system says it sees often that it lock that password from use. Or allowing previously used passwords again.) Allow the user to decide whether or not…
