    If you use Skype for Web on a public or shared device and want to ensure you do not leave any personal data behind, we recommend that you open Skype in a new InPrivate browser window in Edge or a new Incognito browser window in Chrome and make sure that you sign out when you're finished using Skype on that computer. No cookies will be used, and no data will be saved.

    No emergency calls with Skype
    Skype is not a replacement for your telephone and can't be used for emergency calling
