What's my Skype Name?

If you sign in to Skype with a username (rather than an email address or phone number), that username is what we call your Skype Name. You created it when you first joined.



If you sign in with an email address instead, then you have a Microsoft account, not a Skype Name.

Can’t sign in?

If you’ve forgotten your Skype Name and can’t sign in to your account, we can help.
