If not resolve this issue, then

 

Please do a Skype reset:

2. Exit Skype : From the system tray >> right click on the skype icon and click "Quit Skype"

Re: skype keeps logging out

When I log in, the connection is good for a few minutes, then Skype says I have no internet connection.  After a few minutes, it logs back in.  But then the process starts over again.  Have uninstalled and re-loaded the program with the same result.

Re: skype keeps logging out

Hi,

 

My skype keeps logging me out right after I log in. This is happening in ALL of my devices (laptop, android phone, ipad). Right after I login, it will log out. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and restarting the settings for skype (using the %appdata% and change the folder to Old_Skype) but it does not work. PLEASE HELP!!! My sister and brother live on the other side of the world and we use Skype frequently to communicate. 

 

Thank you!
