    How do I block, unblock or report someone in the new Skype?

    You can block a contact to prevent them from calling you, sending you instant messages and seeing your state in Skype. In addition to blocking a contact, you can also choose to report abuse. This notifies us of spammers so we can stop them in the early stages of their activity.

    1. In the Chats screen, find the contact you want to block. 
    2. Tap and hold their name, and then tap Block.

    3. From the Block this contact? window, you can:
      • Report abuse and then block the contact: Tap Report abuse from this person, select a reason, and then tap Block
        report abuse
      • Block someone without reporting abuse: Tap Block.
        report abuse

    4. Once the contact is blocked, they will be removed from your Chats screen and contact list.
    1. In the Chats screen, tap your profile picture.
    2. Tap the settings  button to view your profile.
    3. Tap Privacy, then tap Manage blocked users. You will see a full list of all the Skype contacts that you have blocked.
    4. Tap the Unblock button next to the contact you wish to unblock.
