Privacy when using Skype on iPhone 4 with WiFi only

[ Edited ]

I use Skype on an iPhone 4 via wifi on my home network which runs through a Mac, etc. I do not have SIM card in my phone because I don't use cell service on the phone. In this scenario, can my Skype calls be tapped. I'm concerned about an individual and thought I should ask at the source. Internet search results are mixed. Thanks.

Re: Privacy

if you have a strong password and clean computer/device system, aware of what phishing emails/messages look like or their usual structures, and do not share your password or computer/device to others (and things similar to what were mentioned), I think your account will be safe.

Thanks.  Everything is good, re: your suggestions.  What I was wondering was whether or not someone could "listen" to calls.  But from what I've read elsewhere, my understanding is Skype calls are encrypted.  So that, plus your suggestions, would mean no, Skype calls cannot be tapped.  Correct? :happy:

yes, and in addition, users can only initiate/receive/entertain calls/video calls in one computer/device at a time.
