Here’s How to Delete your Skype account in 2017
For this, you’ll need a computer with Internet access and a Skype account.
1. Firstly, you’ll want to sign in to your Skype account.
2. Secondly, let’s go to your profile.
- If you are in Windows, click ‘Skype’ on your toolbar, then ‘Profile’, and finally click ‘Edit my profile’.
- If you’re using MacOS, click on ‘File’ and there you’ll find ‘Edit Profile’.
- If you’re using Linux, click on your username and click ‘Edit profile’
3. On this screen, you’ll need to delete your user info one by one, when you’re finished it should just have your email, just as in the screenshot.
If this doesn’t work, you’ll have to replace all your personal data for random characters, this will work if you don’t want no one to look for you on the program.
Afterward, you’ll need to contact Skype support and ask them to delete your email, this won’t make you disappear from your friends’ list but, at least they won’t be able to call you.
So yeah, you don’t really have the possibility of permanently delete skype account, you can only hide it from everybody but your contacts, your contacts will still be able to see you, but won’t be able to call you. It’s quite a bad move on Skype’s part, it’s always good to have those options in hand, in case anything bad happens
