It is better to use Skype with friends than without them. With the help of the search bar in Skype, you can search for friends and find them. In addition to searching your friends’ names, you can also search for their Skype names, email addresses, or phone numbers. In order to make things even easier for you, we also display the number of mutual contacts that both of you have, allowing you to narrow down your search results even further.
By using the location of your friends, you can find them easily
There is a good chance that some of your friends may have similar names. The location of the person can also be used to narrow down your search. For instance, if you wanted to search for “John Smith in London”, then you could use “John Smith in London”. It is important to keep in mind that for Skype to find your friend, their location information would have to be included in their profile.
You can manage the settings for your profile by clicking here
Your Skype profile can be customized by adding or editing information such as your location, email address, or phone number so that your friends can find you more easily. You can opt out of being included in search if you do not wish to have your information included. You will be unable to be found in Skype if you opt out of having your address book synced, or if people match you through your phone number, email address, or Skype name, but people may still be able to contact you even though you won’t be searchable in Skype. The number of mutual contacts will still be displayed in the search results, however, you will not be included in the number when other users are looking for you.

Do people know if you search them on Skype?
Unless you directly ask the person if he has a Skype account, you will only be able to find out if he has one by searching for him or her in our Skype directory, or by searching for him/her in our Skype directory. I would recommend you to check his profile information or profile picture if you see that there is a Skype account under his email address.
