Currently, this is not possible, call history is kept for 6 months that is displayed from your account page.

So, basically there is absolutely no guarantee of privacy, or even a way to delete it from your own computer?  This is preposterous.

There are methods for removing it locally from your system: https://support.skype.com/en-us/faq/FA392/Where-can-I-find-my-conversation-history-and-what-can-I-do...

I came looking for this. Sorry - but that's incredible that the history cannot be deleted from the central skype account page. That is a huge privacy issue.

 

When will this be fixed?

I agree.  It is unusual business practice to not allow the customer to control what is shown on their account page.

 

Uncomfortable. :mad:

I found a way to delete all the history - calls and messages.

On Skype screen click TOOLS, then OPTIONS, then PRIVACY

It allows you to clear the history.

 

It says it erases all call records and messages and you cannot retrieve any of it later. So I'haven't cleared it yet.
