cant sign in, says my password is wrong when it isnt.

wont let me sig in at all, keep getting wrong password despite being positive its correct. tried doing password recovery and when i get to the part where u change the password after i type it in  both times and hit enter i get error messege telling to contact support. its my work account and recently got over 800 addrequest in the span of an hr last night, a friend has suggested that maybe it was to many people adding me or something. i fear maybe one of the more desperate individuals may have gotten access to it idk. but i really need to login for my work.

Re: cant sign in, says my password is wrong when it isnt.

This very same issue happened to me too. I'm still waiting on them to resolve it. I'm positive about my password, but it wouldn't let me login, and it won't generate a new token to reset the password either.

 

Not sure what's going on, but at least I know I'm not alone.

in your case, you may indeed need to contact customer support to know if there are any issues involving your account -

Re: cant sign in, says my password is wrong when it isnt.

well after contacting soupport again, this time after talking to 2 people they finally told me my account is locked due to spam LOL, apprently I am just a spam bot and they won't unlock my account or even let me appeal it.

 

Pretty patheteic skype, your soupport is worthless I am sure you don't even check reported accounts just ban people who are getting harrased by trolls.

Same problem. I just signed up for Skype too. This does not bode well for them,
