What is this"your session has timed out" it happens every time I log into Skype.

I now log into Skype with my Messenger email and password.  But every time I enter those, a message come out "your session has timed out. Please try again".  I then have to enter my password again to get connected.  Why is this happening, and how can I correct it.

Are you logged into Skype / Messenger on any other devices?

I have exactly the same problem, ever since upgrading and skype deleteing Messenger from my computers both at home and at work. I'm not signed into skype anywhere else but everytime I log in, using my messenger log in details I get the same problem

Just saw this on another post & it logged in 1st time, so hopefully has cured it. Give it a go!

 

Try to reset skype settings

 

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

 

Click Start >> Run Type: %appdata% Rename folder "Skype" to "Old_Skype"

 

Re-run Skype

As the original poster says, every time I try to log in I get the error message "Your session has timed out. Please try again". I then have to re-enter my pasword, and then can log in. This only started happening after the most recent Skype update. I am not logged in anywhere else.. I tried renaming the Skype folder as suggested by the previous poster and this temporarily resolved the problem, but it has returned again. Anyone know how I can fix this once and for all as it's annoying.

it's happening every single morning to me, over and over again.

I think it's not a problem caused by user, rather it's technical issue to be solved by Microsoft.

 

I'm still unhappy with the idea of being forced to give up my msn and replace it with skype, even though I had no choice when I upgrade, now the new software asking for stupid thing everyday such as "your session has timed out"!!!

I have exactly the same issue. This is now ten posts within this thread and no solution (outside of renaming folders) is forthcoming. Is anyone from MS/Skype monitoring this to find a solution? It's very frustrating to have to sign in every morning now we've been forced to use an MS ID (which I didn't want to).
