What are Microsoft targeted ads?

Microsoft targeted ads use information from your Skype profile (age and gender) to tailor your in-Skype ad experience.

If you don't want Microsoft to use your age and gender to target ads, launch Skype on your Android device, tap Settings, then uncheck the box next to "Allow Microsoft targeted ads".


You might still see ads inside of Skype, but your profile information won't be used to select those ads.
