How to set up options to automatically discard message in IM?

I am quite skeptical about the security that Skype provides, unlike other instant messengers, I cannot seem to set permanent options to automatically discard previous data and conversation.

Is it really standard to have these data removed upon user log out or is there something that I should be doing to fulfill my requirements?

Hi Hamber,

Skype is nice Instant messenger. It really allows to saved previous conversation for more than 30 days but it will automatically deleted after previous months. Its purpose is to be able to see what your previous conversation with any of your contacts.

You can't do anything to delete but you can hide it Anyways.

If you don't want the features of Skype, well I suggest you to use different Instant messenger like Yahoo Messenger, Windows live messenger, Aol Messenger or ovoo. For me, Skype is very helpful when I forgot the previous conversations.

All I have to do is look it up with just one click.

Hello Hamber

I don't know about any options that automatically deletes history in Skype, but you can do it by yourself in its settings. Open Skype and go to the privacy settings in options and clear history that is there for all of the time. Also clear cookies to be extra safe, you will also see this option under privacy settings.

If you still want to delete history automatically, what you can do is to locate the folder where Skype stores it's history and cookies. Then you create a batch program that is written to delete this when run and schedule it to run at specified time.
