You can access Skype generic settings under iPad native settings menu. After opening it, please scroll down and you will see the Skype settings.
Yes I managed to do that & get to some very simple settings features but how do I set the privacy preferences so that I don't have unwanted call or automatic video access by unknown people
I have been clicking around for a couple of hours on this issue as I got an ipad for my mother & set up the skype but she has no computer. I just resolved it by logging out of skype on my computer & logging in with her account details & I adjusted the privacy settings. I note that now the default video setting is to allow contacts only to video. This should have been less time consuming to sort
