Stopping Spam Contact Request On Skype? Spam Friend Requests Every Day

I am getting slammed every day with people (clearly web cam girls) trying to connect on skype. I have no idea how to stop this. I report them and then get twice as many more. Today I have had over 20.

Watching: Stopping spam contact request on skype?

I dont want anyone to connect with me, I only use this for business and know who my contacts are. Is there a way to block these completely and not just per individual?

Good Day!

We apologize for the inconvenience.

You can control who can contact you on Skype, you just need to manage your privacy settings.

Clicksettings > Privacy >> click show advanced options; choose:



Allows calls from >>people in my contacts list only

Automatically receive video and share screens with >>people in my contacts list only

Blocking contacts are done manually, there is no option for mass blocking.

Thank you!

Just asRandallCrockett, I have about 5-10 contact requests every day from spammers. I don”t use Skype too often, so once a week I manually remove ~40 contacts.

It just reminds me of why I stopped using ICQ and went to Skype… Because of spam. But nevermind.

I have the same problem. Why i get a lot of spam request a day? Skype have no action to solve?

It make me so much uncomfortable.

Nope, you cannot. Every spam bot can send you a message.

Maybe there are too few spammed people to bother about?

This is avery good corporate approach – distribute resources between products to cover 99% of users and never go for perfection.

I think it is my farewell letter to Skype.

Yes, absolutely annoying and disgusting!

I am receiving a dozen of fake contact requests every day. That”s why I am not using Skype any more.

Skype must let us block all incoming contact requests!

Another solution is to quarantine them and not pop up every time.
