How do I change my email address or add another email address to my profile?

When you first registered with Skype, we asked you to provide us with an email address that was automatically set as your primary email address. We use your primary email address to contact you with important information about your Skype account.

To add another email address to your Skype profile:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile picture or select Profile in the Account details section.
  3. In the Contact details section, click Add email address under the list of your registered emails.
  4. In the empty box that appears, enter your new email address and click the green Save button at the bottom right of the page.
     
  5.  The Email address fill-in box in the Contact details section of your Skype account Profile webpage.

Note that you will only see your primary email listed in your profile at Skype.com, and not in your Skype client. If you change your primary email, your original primary email will show as an additional email address in your Skype client; your new primary email will be visible in your profile at Skype.com.

You can add up to three more profile email addresses or edit those you have already registered.

You can also remove the email addresses you no longer need. To remove an email address from your profile, tap Edit to the right of the Contact details, and then click in the box with the address. Delete the address and click the green Save button at the bottom right of the page.

Be aware that you can’t delete your primary email address as there always needs to be one in your Skype profile. However, there are two easy ways to change your primary email address. You can simply edit the one you’ve already registered, or you can choose one of your profile email addresses to be your primary email address if you want.

To set a profile email address as your primary email address:

  1. Sign in to your account.
  2. Click your profile picture or select Profile in the Account details section.
  3. Scroll down to the Contact details section and click Edit to the right of the Contact details.
  4. Select Set as primary email next to the new email address and click the green Save button at the bottom right of the page.
     
    The Set as primary email option next to a filled-in Email address box in the Contact details section of your Skype account Profile webpage.

  5. Enter your Skype password to confirm the change of your primary email address.
