Skype is better with friends. You can search and find friends using the search bar in Skype. You can search your friends' names, Skype name, email address or phone number. We then help you narrow down your search results by displaying the number of mutual contacts you share, making it even easier to find the right people.
Find your friends by their location
Too often your friends may have common names. You can zero in on them by using a location as well. For example, just "John Smith London" or more specifically "John Smith in London". Keep in mind your friend would need to have their location information in their profile for Skype to find them.
Manage your profile settings
You may add or edit information in your Skype profile such as your location, email, or phone number to make it easier for your friends to find you. If you prefer not to be included in search and suggestions, then you can opt out here. Opting out will make you unsearchable in Skype and exclude you from friends-of-friends suggestion, but people may still contact you if you have synced your address book or through matching via phone number, email address, or Skype Name. You will still see the number of mutual contacts in search, however, you yourself are not included in the count when others are searching.
