Re: skype not fully signed in?

Michele Barbi
 

Hey Clare, Skype on iOs it's quite usable now, I am also able to hide offline contacts there as well though the setting will not survive after a Skype restart I think. In addition, recently it no longer asks me the password when I sign in with my iPhone, there's only a button saying Sign in as Michele Barbi, and double-tapping there I am online without doing anything.
Anyway I don't know much concerning Skype for Windows since I never had issues so far, the only thing is that I always disconnect from Skype after using it, and there I need to put the password back. In addition, I connected my Skype account to the Microsoft one since much time so that should'nt be a problem, and who knows if this is the reason I can sign in now...
Bye!

Re: skype not fully signed in?

Clare Page <clare.page@...>
 

Hi!

I had exactly the same problem when I opened Skype 7.40 yesterday, with it showing up as Connecting in my system tray, and with the only online contacts being Echo Sound Test Service and Skype. I usually hide my offline contacts, so, when I saw that none of my personal contacts were showing up, I assumed that, for some reason, Skype simply wasn’t going to let me see them. For a while I suspected that Skype was switching off access to Skype 7, that’s probably why I didn’t think of getting Skype to show my offline contacts. However, a test call worked fine when I did one, so I knew Skype wasn’t completely broken for me.

If only I had quit Skype at that point, but I took further steps which made me end up with more complications, and these mean I currently can’t use Skype at all, not on the PC anyway. A friend suggested that I should sign out of Skype then sign back in again, but, when I did the latter, Skype would only accept seven characters of my longer password, and I kept getting a Script Error message every time I tried to put the password in. At this point, even though Skype 7.40 had worked fine before yesterday, I assumed my installation must be corrupted, so I did a clean uninstall of Skype and reinstalled it. Unfortunately, when it came to signing in after that reinstall of Skype 7.40, I still had the same problems signing in, namely Skype not accepting my entire password and giving me a script error when I tried to put it in. I should point out that my password was accepted in its entirety when I pressed enter on the Problems Signing In link, which means that I can still  work with my profile on the Skype website, but being able to sign in on the web doesn’t mean it works in the desktop program.

As I use Skype with NVDA on Windows 7, updating from Skype 7.40 to Skype 8 isn’t an option for me, as I have heard from several people that Skype 8 is inaccessible with NVDA at present. One option might be to change to a shorter password in Skype 7, so I might try that later. Another possible option might be to use a Microsoft account instead of my old-fashioned Skype account, but for me that is a last resort, I want to keep the account I already have for as long as I can. There are a few reasons why I am so reluctant to create a new Skype account: I would guess that this would mean having to re-add all my contacts, plus I’ve read something recently about people’s phone numbers and emails showing up on other people’s contact lists instead of their names if they sign in with a Microsoft account, something I really don’t want. It’s possible that my assumptions about Skype 8 with NVDA and about using a Microsoft account for Skype are wrong, but they are still there until I’m told otherwise.

I have Skype on my iPhone, but I haven’t used it for ages, so I don’t know if IOS Skype is still accessible: I prefer to use Skype on my computer anyway, I find it more convenient.

If anyone can give me advice as to what to do next, I would definitely be grateful.

Bye for now, and happy skyping!

I just recently went through this with Skype not signing in and the System Tray saying, connecting.. and all that. I found that updating Skype did absolutely nothing to improve the situation. It evidently does not matter. I was signed out for 4 or 5 days and then it just seemed to have resolved itself, but who knows how long it’ll take for whomever of us that this unfortunately happens to.

I'm having trouble with skype this afternoon that I've never seen before. In the system tray skype reports connecting even when I'm using it. All of my contacts show offline. I'm unable to send text messages, even though I can call somebody, but it seems as though I can  only be talking  to one contact at the time. I try inviting somebody else to a existing call and that doesn't seem to work either. Again, I can call and am having a skype call right now.  Using skype 7.36. any ideas?

Hello guys, I had no issues till now when I tried to sign in. I just checked out heartbeat and figured out there are possible connection issues especially with Skype UWP, and especifically if you turned on 2-step verification.

Yeah, you are sent instructions  to reset the password through that email I think. You are also sent more stuff from them regarding the skype account through that email. I actually don't know how they are doing  it but my students have user names and some of them just started in December of 2017, so yeah it appears there is a workaround but I don't know what it is.
