Stolen laptop - how to trace location via skype

Hi

 

A little while ago our laptop was stolen and this afternoon I saw that our account for skype that was connected to that laptop logged in. I was hoping if there was a way to track the location of the laptop. Please help!!!

if there's a way for Skype to check the IP used to access your account, I think they will only disclose them to your local police or proper authorities.  So I think one of your options is to report this incident to your local police.

Hi

The laptop has been reported already - I rang them today and explained the situation to them and they said I should try and contact the skype support to track the laptop.
