Is Skype Safe?

As of 2014, an independent security review for Skype has concluded that Skype is safe to use. According to the review, Skype protects users against a range of potential security pitfalls, like eavesdropping, impersonation and data modification, and Skype utilizes encryption algorithms designs specifically to keep criminals from getting user information or infiltrating user privacy.

Still, users can feel safer by avoiding putting details of their lives on their Skype profiles, or even by not filling out a profile at all. Skype privacy settings can also be set in a way that lets users keep a low profile on Skype without sharing any information that they are not comfortable sharing.
