How to Delete Chat History in Skype
Skype is a program used around the world to communicate via video, voice and chat. When you use this program to chat with others, it saves a complete log of all chats indefinitely as a default setting. If you share your computer with others and would prefer to delete your chat history to protect your privacy, it only takes a few seconds.
Launch your version of Skype.
Click the Tools menu at the top of the window, then select "Options."
Click the "Privacy" button on the left side of the Options screen. (If you are using a version of Skype older than v. 1.2, this does not apply.)
Locate and click the "Clear Chat History" button. Confirm the action if you're prompted to do so. The chat history is now clear.
Tips & Warnings
- You can also edit the length of time Skype keeps chat histories within the privacy section of the Skype options screen. There is a drop-down menu full of options, including the option to not record any chat history.
