How to delete chat history from every computer/device COMPLETELY?

I have a problem with deleting history completely. I would like to know how to do this.

 

Here is my problem: When i delete the history inside skype settings, it just deletes history from "this computer" but when i log in to another computer it shows up there! I have tried to delete it allready on 5 computers but the history is still there when i log in to another computer/phone!

 

So my question is, can some admin from skype delete all my history completely or can i do it by my self so the history is gone 100% and cannot be found again on another computer? 

 

If some admin can do it for me, i would like him to contact me! 

Or if a knowledge skype using member knows how to do, Reply this message then!

I was at first confused Skype doesn't allow me to clear my chat history completely and permanently until I found that all chats are stored locally. So every time you log into Skype on another machine, Skype history is bringing back due to syncronization. Then i spotted Delete skype history http://deleteskypehistory.com. It works really well for Windows 7 and Windows 8 on my home machine and laptop. This program removes chat history with selection for one or multiple contacts. It also has a filter option that cleans out messages whatever date and time i specify. In this app, i can even make a backup of all chats. Restore option is included, too. Hope it’ll help. Have fun until Skype implements this feature.

Hi, does it work on all computers that you have used just doing it in one computer?

hi, i just commented a similar question in another post and found this one. following one's recommendation I found their web-site. they also have "network edition" program that can remove messages on all devices, on both sides - mine and my contacts, Windows, Mac OS, android, iphone
