Steps To Change Skype Password

In order to add to the security of your Skype account, it’s wise to use a strong password. According to online security experts, such a password is at least 7 characters long and is a mixture of random numbers and letters. Furthermore, it wouldn’t be bad to use special characters like “?”, “!”, “*”, or “/” in the password as well.

If your Skype password isn’t as strong, we urge you to change it as soon as possible. You never know when hackers will get an idea to try to get ahold of your Skype account. And if they do, the only thing that will be able to stop them will be your strong password.

So, if you want to change the password on your Skype account, here is what you need to do:

  • Step 1 – Sign in to your Skype account
  • Step 2 – Click the option Skype from the top menu (located in the left corner)
  • Step 3 – A drop-down menu will appear, where you need to choose “Change Password”
  • Step 4 – This will make the Microsoft account site open in your browser
  • Step 5 – Sign in to your Microsoft account
  • Step 6 – Enter the new password and confirm it
  • Step 7 – Go to Skype (you will get logged out automatically after changing the password) and log in again, using your new password

Resetting the Lost Skype Password

If you’ve forgotten your Skype password, you can get your account back and create a new password easily. In order to do it, open Skype and click the link saying “Problems signing in?”, after which you need to enter your email address. You will then receive an email, containing a link taking you to the password reset page. What’s left is to type in the new password and confirm the changes.

If something goes wrong along the way and you’re unable to retrieve your password, the best thing to do is get in touch with our Australian Skype support team. You can get ahold of them by calling the Skype support number 1-800-921-785.
