Windows 7: Skype Removing old unused accounts

Skype Removing old unused accounts

At Skype, we take account security and safety very seriously. Periodically, we review old unused accounts and remove them to prevent them falling in wrong hands and to prevent possible misuse.

Over the next few weeks, we will be removing some accounts which were created automatically for users while signing into Microsoft and which have not been used in the past year.

The account holders will not notice any change, they will be able to use Skype as normal should they sign into Microsoft Outlook and initiate a Skype chat. Old conversations will be archived and replaced by a new one. You might appear twice in your friendís conversation history if the old archived conversation is still stored locally on their device.

To learn more about using Skype from Microsoft, please visit our FAQ.

Very nice of MS to auto create skype accounts and nicer for them to finally delete them when not used
Would of been better to create them if someone actually used skype lol
