    Why can anyone contact me in Skype on mobile or tablet?

    Back to search results

    Anyone can contact you in Skype on Android (6.0+), Android tablet, iPhone, and iPad. When someone reaches out to you for the first time, you can choose to accept or block messages or calls from that person.


    Before you accept, they will be restricted to sending you a limited number of messages and any media content they send is censored to protect you from spam.
