Let me summarize the discussion in this topic so we can close this topic:

To delete the local (!) chat history in a conversation do the following:

  1. Open the "Recent" tab (iPhone & iPod) / sidebar (iPad).
  2. Tap the "Edit" button
  3. You will see a red remove icon next to each conversation. Tap it to remove.


NB: This will only delete the local chat history. If you log in to Skype from a different device the chat content will be synced there. This is how Skype chat sync is designed currently.

Same problem!. Can't delete recent conversations, can't delete history. History has an edit/delete option but next time you sign on again everything is there. They bring on new things and complicate others. Lets hope they an sort it out soon. Cheers!

It's very tedious isn't it. It is a free app though. So when you really need to delete the evidence, just delete the app then reload it. That gets rid of the history.

I wish I knew how. I took Skype off iPad and reloaded it but the next time I used Skype on my computer the chat was on my iPad. It's a real invasion and a pain

I just figured this out for myself after searching for the answer. U have to turn ur ipad landscape and by ur profile pic it says "edit". Click that and the delete icon will show up next to the all the different chats in the left column. Just hit that delete icon and its gone

You didn't have to. Go to the top of the page and go to tools. Once you get there, click on the privacy button. Then go to the right and click on the more options button. Clear history should be right next to it. So if you don't want any history there to to be saved at all yu can adjust the settings. You can figure it out yourself once you get there
