Deleting skype history with one person

Hey. 
For privacy issues i want to delete my skype history with one person, but also for the person i want to delete my skype history with to be unavalible to see our history. I dont want this person to show what i have written to him to others. Is it possible and if so how?

If i delete my skype account will the history be deleted with it and others wont be able to view my skype history with them?

Currently, this is not possible to do for specific conversations.

 

Even if you deleted your history information or stopped using your Skype name, that would not remove what history the other person has, if they have history enabled.

 

There is no way to delete a Skype name as well.

Well, you can edit/delete any message sent in 1 to 1 chats up to 1 hour after sending them, not to be confused with 1 hour after they have been received.

 

Personally, I don't know of any popular IM software that can pull back or remove history from someone elses history.

 

Yes, I am sure.

 

You are very welcome.

I agree this is really stupid that a written conversation cannot be deleted....U may have shared very personal info which could be used to blackmail U later.......I see U can delete all the conversations but are they retrievable ...?

Re: Deleting skype history with one person

I have a friend in africa that left her skype on in the internet cafe. Now they have hijacked her account and are using it. They can read all of our history. And i have no way to close account until she gets to a pc. And she will not go back to that cafe. So be aware people!

she can simply change her Skype password using any computer.  Then her account will be logged out from that computer in that internet cafe once her password is successfully changed.

Re: Deleting skype history with one person

When you have chat conversations on Skype, these are stored on the computer that you are ‘chatting’ on in a folder that has the same name as your ‘Skype Name’, the location for which varies depending on the operating system being used. Your Skype chat history is stored in a file called main.db which resides at the following location: Windows 7 On a Windows 7 Operating system, the location of a Skype account is: C:\Users\[USER NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Skype\[Skype Name]\ Note: the above example is based on the operating system having been installed on the C drive. This may be different in your case. The “[USER NAME]” needs to be replaced with your OS user name, and the “[Skype Name]” needs to be replaced with your Skype Name. Your Skype Name can be found by opening Skype and selecting ‘Skype’ -> ‘Profile’ -> ‘Edit Your Profile’ and reviewing the display on the right hand side.
