You can hide your phone, your email, not to show your profile picture in Skype if you wish. But people who are concerned about privacy have long been asking the question on forums: “how can I hide my Skype profile from search?” Today we will explain how you can entirely hide yourself if you don’t want your account to be suggested in the Skype search. And vice versa – how to allow displaying your profile in search results, so anyone will be able to find you using your name and username (for old accounts created before being acquired by Microsoft and merging with LiveID).
In Skype app version 7 you could completely sign out from Skype but save credentials and you could sign in again without entering your login and password.
