Skype can be a great way to collaborate on homework or stay in touch with friends online.
You can use it not only as a video chat tool, but also for instant messaging. But when people you've never met try to add you as a contact on Skype, it can be annoying or even scary. You can block anyone you want on Skype and she won't be able to contact you, and you can also adjust your privacy to reduce the of people trying to add you as a contact. You need to make these changes from your computer, but they will affect your Skype experience on your mobile app as well. Change your picture from Public to Contacts Only by clicking the drop-down menu under your profile picture.
Select "Manage" under your name. In the new browser window that opens, log in to the Skype website, click "Edit" in the Personal Information section and remove any personal information that you don't want shared publicly.
Specifically, it's a good idea to remove your gender, age and location. Click "Save" when you're done.
Note that if you are under 13, and you've entered that information into Skype, you will automatically be removed from any public searches so only people who know your exact name and address can find you. Return to the Skype app and choose the "Tools" menu, then select "Options.
Set the privacy to allow only calls, video or IMs from people in your contact list. James T Wood is a teacher, blogger and author. Since he has published two books and numerous articles, both online and in print.
