I received a Skype msg that I successfully changed my Skype password. I did not request a password change. How do I see who requested the change and when?

  • I doubt there is a way to see who requested it and when. My guess is that someone that knows your email (assuming that is what you used to sign up with skype) has gone through that to change it. It has been so long since I signed up for skype that I don't remember how I did it, but usually an email is required for such things.

  • Shanlaree,

    Thank you so much for your response. I just wish skype would confirm before acting upon.

  • Hacker maybe or a Parent or family member while you were not around. It may be best to ask your Parents or a computer repair man.
    This answer depends on your age.

  • Well, they may have confirmed through your email. For instance, someone in the family could have gone in there, pressed the "forgot my password" and then went into your email (of course they we need to know your password, unless you always have it open) and reset it that way. Or if skype was already open they could have pressed the "change password" button and went about it that way.

  • Why is this in the child's health sections?

  • I think you posted this in the wrong section...

  • Are you sure that the email wasn't a spoof?

  • Sounds like you were hacked. Delete or shut down your Skype account.
