I have had several issues with Skype having to uninstall and reinstall repeatedly yo get it to work correctly, but only once each time. I believe it is a flaw in the Skype programming.

Password...I dont know my password


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.

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.

My Skype account is account block


Finding out that your Skype account has been hacked can be a nasty shock. It means that you lose access to your contacts, at least temporarily. This can potentially mean that you cannot get in touch with certain people. Furthermore, a hacked account may mean that the hacker is using your Skype credit or even your PayPal money to place calls of his own.

Change Your Password Changing your Skype password, if you can, helps limit the hacker's access to your account. With any luck, the hacker has only changed your password and not also the email address associated with your Skype account. Visit Skype's "Create an Account or Sign In" page and click the "Forgotten your password?" link. https://login.skype.com/account/login-form?intcmp=sign-in&return_url=https%3A%2F%2Fsecure.skype.com%2Faccount%2Flogin Provide the email address associated with your account in the box that appears for the purpose, and then click "Get password." Visit the inbox for the account you provided. You should have an email from Skype. Click the link within this email to reset your password. b> Reporting the Issue b> Let Skype know about the fact that your account has been compromised. Do this regardless of whether you were successfully able to regain access to your account by resetting the password. Submit a support request on Skype's "Identity theft/Account takeover" topic by visiting the associated help page. Click the blue "Continue support request" button at the bottom of the page. Choose the "Email support" option, and then fill out the required information. This includes your full name, your Skype name and a specific description of your issue. You may also need to provide the email address you used when you initially created the Skype account, even if you changed the address associated with the account later. Safety Precautions b> Take some safety precautions to stop the situation from getting any worse. If your Skype account is linked to your PayPal account, for example, contact PayPal immediately. Inform them of possible fraudulent charges and to ask them to refuse any further Skype charges. If you use your hacked Skype password for other accounts, such as online banking or email, change those passwords to prevent the hacker from gaining access to those accounts. b> Avoiding a Recurrance b> Having your Skype account hacked once is probably more than enough for your taste. Don't let it happen again. Create a strong password when you regain access to your Skype account. Include letters, numbers and punctuation in this password to make it harder to figure out. In the future, if you receive emails that appear to be from Skype and ask you to sign in or provide your password, do not do so. Instead, go directly to the Skype website and sign in to your account there. Be careful when signing in to your Skype account in a public place, as someone may watch over your shoulder and figure out your password. Hope it helps.

I forgot my skype password


You can still reset it. Open the Skype, enter your username, click "Forgot you password?", (you can do even if you don't enter the username, but it's better since you'll be taken to your personal page, check the url, you'll be be able to see your username).

another windows will open up on the Browser, there, you'll see box "Enter your email address", type in your email address and click "submit"



nonontech_0.jpg



You'll receive a temporary password on your email. Use the code to login and change the password after you are logged in. Note: to change the password, you'll need the temporary password, so don't delete the email, better note it down and change it once you are logged in.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi there...i have one skype account with name ,, harsanmarius,, and pasword used to be 201976 all my life , but from 1 weak somebody take it from me , my exboyfriend ....and he change pasword ...can i have...


The only problem here is if your ex-boyfriend also managed to changed the email address registered on your skype. If not, launch the Skype application, and click forgot password. If you still have access to the email registered to this Skype account, then you will be receiving the instruction in your email plus a temporary code to change your password.
