If you’d like to remain signed in to Skype, but do not want notifications for new chat messages or calls, you can easily turn off notifications on your iPhone or iPad:
- From the iPhone/iPad home screen, tap the Settings icon.
- Tap Notifications.
- In Notifications, scroll down until you find Skype and tap it.
- Use the sliders to either turn notifications off or on (1), turn sounds on or off (2), turn app icon badges on or off (3), or turn notifications on the lock screen on or off (4). Also, you can choose how many notifications to display (5).
- You can also change how notifications are displayed. To turn off alert displays, choose None.
If you'd like to turn the notifications back on, simply go back into the Skype settings in the Notifications and tap Banners or Alerts.
