Skype Password Tips

  • Use a mixture of letters, numbers and characters – like the characters above the numbers on many keyboards such as %, *,$, £ and !. Including in your password punctuation, symbols and other non-standard characters helps to increase the strength of your password.
  • Avoid names, birthdays and dictionary words, as these are easy to guess and hack.
  • The longer the password is, the stronger it usually is – but the harder it is to recall. Choose a password you can remember so that you don’t have to write it down.
