Make Your Number of Skype Contacts Private

By default, Skype allows all your contacts to view the number of contacts added to your Skype list.

However, you might not want your contacts in Skype to know the number of contacts that you have added to your account. Skype allows you to change the visibility scope of the number of contacts in your Skype list, and make the numbers visible only to you and not to other Skype contacts.

Here is how you can hide the number of Skype contacts from other contacts in your Skype list:

    ■Open Skype by double-clicking its icon.
    ■Sign-in to your Skype account by either using Microsoft account or your Skype Name.

    ■Assuming that you are using your Skype Name to sign in, provide your login credentials in the appropriate fields and click the Sign in button.

    ■From the Skype interface, click the Skype menu from the menu bar at the top-left corner.
    ■From the displayed list, click Profile.
    ■From the opened sub menu, click the Edit Your Profile option.

    ■Once this is done, from the right pane under your profile, click Show full profile.

    ■Click the Contacts drop-down list representing Contacts from the bottom.
    ■From the displayed options, click Private - visible only to you to hide the number of Skype contacts from others.
