Re: Cancel a Skype account?

GOOD LUCK BUDDY... SKYPE INVITES YOUR ACCOUNT TO GET HACKED. It's a normal thing for a SKYPE account to get hacked. Infact, Skype actually like it. It helps them charge more to their users than they normally would. Solution? Close your account, get a Yahoo Voice account; they're the same VOIP backbone...

I want to change my Skype name and edit my profile. Since I can't do this, I need to cancel my account and set up a new one.

Hi, hansshoefgen, and welcome to the Community!

 

Please allow me to clarify a few details: while Skype does not permit an account name to be changed, you may certainly change or edit your profile, including how your name appears on other people's contact lists.  Skype looks and works differently depending upon the platform on which you are running it.

Here is information realted to editing your profile details: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA390/Who-can-see-my-profile-information

 

As Primemover notes, Skype does not permit an account to be deleted once it is created; please see this for more information https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA142/Can-I-delete-my-Skype-account as well as the information Primemover provides the link to, earlier in this thread.

 

Regards,

Elaine
