I would like to set my picture, email, birthday and other info private so only my contacts can see it. How do I do that? On the profile update screen has all the fields to add info but nothing to set as private. can anyone help me?
I am confused ... as I am not familiar with the Live Messenger/Skype account merge, I know only the Skype profile settings where certain information displays as "public," "private," and "contacts only" by default, with e-mail addresses only being private.
Can you please provide a screen shot of what it is that you are seeing? I found this same enquiry posted by another Community member on another message board. If your screen shot includes personally identifiable information, do not include it here on the public community -- please send to me via private message.
Hi, Ebony, and welcome to the Community,
Skype has determined that most of the Profile settings default to "public" view; we are not offered choices except for a few of those settings for which there are drop-down menu choices. The only way around revealing data you do not wish to be viewed is to leave those settings as "blank" or "not specified."
Whether one's profile is 20% complete or 100% complete has no bearing on using Skype.
I have tried to delete certain items in the personal information section in my profile but it won't let me save it. When I go back and look, my profile is still "90% Complete" and the information I tried to leave out is still there. I entered that information not knowing that it would be public, so I want it either deleted or I want the privacy settings changed. Is there anything I can do?
Hi, MattDavis, and welcome to the Community,
Try this: rather than sign on to the Skype website, where we manage our subscriptions and payment methods, try instead to navigate to your profile settings from within the client software itself. In the Windows Desktop version, it's as easy as Skpe -> Profile -> Edit your profile.
