Are you trying your best to figure out the privacy settings in Skype? Skype’s privacy settings let you control whom you want to contact on Skype and even lets you manage your Skype conversation history. If you modify or change your Skype privacy settings you can avoid all unwanted calls and even spam messages. Along with it you can also block and report contacts that are a complete nuisance to you.

  • Control who can contact you on Skype
  • Control who can make Skype-to-Skype calls to you
  • Control who is allowed to send you videos and even share screen space with you

  • If you do not want to share your profile details with advertisers, uncheck ‘Allow Microsoft targeted ads, including use of Skype profile and gender’.
  • Control your conversation history
