    What should I do if I receive unwanted calls in Skype?

    Back to search results

    If you are receiving unwanted calls in Skype, you can change your call settings to only allow calls from your contacts to ring on your device:

    1. Select your profile picture.
    2. Select Settings.
    3. Select Calling.
    4. Toggle Only allow calls from contacts to ring on this device to On.
      If someone who isn't in your contact list calls you, Skype will show a missed call from them. 
    Changing this setting does not apply to incoming voice messages, or calls to your Skype Number. Anyone can still leave you a voice message, or call you on your Skype Number. 

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