    Thank you all who voted for this request! We have recently made changes which should allow you to see your Username. On Skype 8 You can see it in Settings > Account & Profile under Skype Name field.

    In case you created an account using email or phone number you will see your username as live:emailid or live:uniqueidentifier.

    No exact release date is available but we are working on adding support to allow users to customize their user name. I’ll keep you posted as we move closer to release

    Even when an alias email is created the skype name remains the same and you are therefore unable to go anonymous if the skype name generated for you is your real name, wich is the case for many ppl."" might give you "live:first.last" as a skype name for example. I want to be able to change my skype name or hide it on my alias email.
