Good news!

 

When you sign out and change your Skype account password, a sign-out is forced on all devices where you were previously signed in, even automatically.  In case you may not have seen it (although it looks like you have), here is the FAQ descibing the password re-set process:  https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA95/how-do-i-change-my-password

 

HINT: I strongly recommend ensuring that your account's registered e-mail address is correct before you enact the password re-set routine as a 'token' will be sent to your account's registered e-mail address. 

 

Best regards,

Elaine
