dude Posted April 18, 2015 Report Share Posted April 18, 2015 I have had it with SKYPE! Since Microsoft acquired SKYPE, the communications system has been on a steady downhill slide. Now – the latest version of SKYPE – has apparently removed the privacy protections and today I got about two dozen solicitations from ‘female’ SKYPE users this with all my privacy setting set at max. This has been a subject of continuing complaints on SKYPE’s own user forums but has been consistently ignored by SKYPE. http://community.skype.com/t5/Security-Privacy-Trust-and/Unwanted-Contact-Requests/td-p/3013210 Since John (AlienSon) our Design Editor and I often need to communicate by IM we have been using SKYPE. As Microsoft – the world’s greediest marketer – intends to do nothing about this we need a secure method of IM communications. Can anyone suggest a system that is secure and spam-free, even if it requires a reasonable annual fee? Thanks, gang! Mike Quote Link to comment
