I'd like to hide my last name on my personal information (either be able to delete it or hide it). But it wont let me delete it so how can I hide it?
Nevermind I got it .
I'd like to know how you were able to hide or delete your last name as well. It's amazingly stupid by Skype that you seemingly can't change such a private thing as your last name or your birthday from being fully searchable by anyone.
To anyone finding this through Google:
-When you've first set your last name you can't delete or hide it, only change it to for example initials.
- In order to change your password you have to edit your profile on https://secure.skype.com/portal/profile, but it requires you to fill in your last name if you haven't already done so. Beware.
For those who haven't figured it out, I just got it.
Instead of clicking "Manage" and making the change in the browser, you can click the bold name above "Accounts: YourUserName" in the profile popup. I assume this is what will then appear on all public-facing stuff.

Can confirm, thanks! Removed both my last name and my birthday using the Linux client. It was labeled as "Full name".
