    Using Skype for Web safely on a public or shared computer

    There are a few things that we recommend you do if you use Skype for Web on a public or shared computer.

    • Open Skype for Web in a new InPrivate browser window in Edge or a new Incognito browser window in Chrome. No cookies will be used, and no data will be saved.
    • When signing into Skype, make sure the option to keep yourself signed in is unchecked.
    • Sign out of Skype for Web when you're finished using it on that computer. You can either select your profile picture and select sign out or select sign out from the bottom of your browser window.
