If it's been awhile since you used Skype to communicate with friends abroad or family back home, you might draw a big blank when it's time to type in your Skype username.
Skype requires a username and password from users to log in to the service.
You choose this username and password when you register for a Skype account.
By using Skype's recovery options and the email address used to register the account, you can retrieve your Skype username with ease.
Navigate to the Skype homepage online at skype.com.
Click "Sign In."
Click "Forgotten your Skype Name?" under the Skype Name entry box.
Type the email address you used to register the account in the box that appears.
Click "Get Skype Name."
Skype will email you a link to that address to recover your username.
Click on the link inside the email sent by Skype.
A page will open displaying your username.
Change your password in three easy steps.
This helps to keep your new password secure.
You will need to fill in your email address.
We'll email you a temporary code.
Use the code to change your password on our secure website.
