Your credit card details and other billing information are stored in compliance with the highest safety and security standards set by the credit card industry. Skype is also PCI DSS* compliant. Skype follows these regulations to help protect the personal data of its customers. *Skype is not responsible for the content of external sites.
If your new credit card information is already updated in your Skype account, it’s because your card provider notified us of a change to your payment method.

These programs prevent the interruption of your auto-renewing subscriptions if your credit card is lost or expires. For more information, or to opt out, contact your card provider.
