My friends told me that I'm online when I wasn't, so I tried to log in and log off again and it didn't help. I also deleted my skype app on my iphone but it didn't help too.

I really don't know what to do please help.

On your iPhone, go to Settings, then to Skype.

That page will show:

Sign in automatically,

Go Offline, with your choice.

Check that, mine was set to immediately, I reset it to 30 minutes.

Hope that helps.

It is a Skype bug....if you use windows 8 app you will understand it's clearly a Skype bug...no reset to settings or something else will work...

I am constantly showing as being online when I am not. I have uninstalled Skype on my laptop and tablet and still showed online. I have tried the suggestion above, which has also not worked.

My Skype is Version 6.14 and this is reallly frustrating.

 

The only status that seems to work is when I make myself invisible, but that means I would have to do that on every device, and it only works once, as it does not work once changed back. Please help me to resolve this issue.
