Hide phone number from contacts in Skype

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -


I have added a few extra contacts in my Skype list to chat with in my free time. But the problem arises here that all these random people are getting to know my personal phone number. How can I change the Skype settings so it doesn't disclose my number to anyone? Also tell me how I can sync the contact list to the app itself?

Hi !

Since everyone can see your personal information that you have added to your account Skype its possible because you also changed your privacy settings.

You have to log on Skype and follow the next steps:

1) Click on the Profile Tab

2) Show full profile

3) In the right column you change what information you want to be public, private or only your friends can see them.

4) Click on each one row on la right column and change as you wish.

Profile Tab-Show Full Profile-Right Column are highlighted in red in the bottom picture.
