Frequently Asked Questions
Can people see my birthday on Skype?
As part of your Skype profile, you have the option to include your birth date. There are some parts of your profile that are only accessible to you, such as your email address, while the visibility of other parts of your profile is configurable, such as your timezone. It is public information, so all of your contacts are able to view your birth date by clicking on the link in your profile.
Why is Skype asking for a Microsoft account?
In addition to having access to other Microsoft services such as OneDrive, Xbox, and Office, your Skype account allows you to communicate with what’s important to you. There might be a prompt for you to enter your phone number or email address if you are trying to sign into another Microsoft service.
Why is Skype not signing in?
If you’re having trouble signing in, make sure that you’re using the latest version of Skype, that you have the latest software updates and hardware drivers for your computer, and that you have the latest version of Skype. The majority of sign-in problems can be resolved by doing this.
How do I log into my Skype account?
What is the sign-in process for Skype? Having a Skype or Microsoft account is easy. Open Skype and tap or click on your name, email or phone number.
Can I log into Skype without a Microsoft account?
The Skype free service can now be used as a guest user, which means that you don’t have to create a Microsoft account or sign in to your Microsoft account to start a chat, make a video or voice call, or transfer files. Skype no longer requires that you have an account in order to use it.All images and contents credit goes to support.skype.com
