Re: Delete skype profile.

first, i'm sorry to hear what happened.  

 

basically, it is not possible to delete an existing Skype account.  Once an account is created, it will remain in Skype database indefinitely.  I'm not sure if Skype considers exemptions for this rule (you can contact customer service to clarify - [https://] support.skype.com/support_selection).  If you or someone can access that account, you can delete the details registered there, remove the profile image if any, so no one would know the owner of that account. You can also left a status message like "account no longer in use".

 

Moreover, that account will also be removed from the search results after 6 months I think.

you can simply replace the display name with anything or any imaginary name or word, then just select the blank values for the date of birth.
