Can any of my contacts see my other contacts?

Hi,

 

I've searched the community and the internet and can't find the answer, does anybody know if my contact list can be seen by my contacts, I can't seem to see the contact list of any of my contacts so I assume it is the same both ways but I'd like to be sure. Is there a setting I need to check, this question stems from the fact I know on other social sites such as facebook when you "friend" someone it shows who they are friends with as suggestions etc. Is Skype the same.

 

Many thanks in advance and apologies if this is covered elsewhere.

 

John.

Depending of your account settings, your contacts may see the "number" of contacts you have, but they cannot see who are the persons/users in your contact list.

Thanks for your response, is this setting you mention within the "profile" editing section of skype or elsewhere?

 

Thanks again.

When anyone clicks on show your profile they can see how many other contacts you have.

 

You can stop others seeing how many other contacts you have.

 

1. Click Skype menu >> Profile >> Edit Your Profile

2. Look for Contacts, the opposite it click the dropdown selection arrow and select Private - visible only to you.

Have the screens changed?   I cant find the button that displays the contact number.

I do not want anyone to be able to see any of my contacts or the number of contacts that I have.

 

Thank you in advance,  j

With the latest Skype versions you need first to press the “Show full profile” button.

Is not completily true, you can see the other person contact names.

If you go to:
C:\Users\{PC_USER}\AppData\Roaming\Skype\{Contact_skype_username}\chatsync

 

You will see a set of folders, If you open this files, you will see the names of the contacts of your contact.

 

At least it works for my contacts, I can see them.

I tried to open the link but it seems as if it was trying to access something on my C drive.
