Re: Hacking of video calls ?

unwanted, random, and strange contact requests are indeed very, very common in Skype nowadays. In most cases, those users who are sending those contact requests are fraud or scammers, but not necessarily hackers. there is no way for anyone or anything to hack your video calls, unless your (or her) computer has some sort of a virus/malware/spyware that is designed to do that.

I think viruses in computers are more advanced as compared to viruses in mobile devices.  so just the same, hacking of Skype calls when using a mobile device is also less likely (if not impossible).
