Time to Change Your Skype Password

Skype recently issued an advisory and fixed a bug which could allow anyone who knew a Skype user’s email address to change said user’s Skype password. While Skype has issued a statement saying that only a small number of users were affected, it is recommended that all users (this means you, too) change their Skype password.

You can do this in the Macintosh version of Skype by clicking the File menu and choosing Change Password…

From the Windows version of Skype, click the Skype menu, and click Change Password…

Or, from any web browser, simply go to, sign in, and click the “Change Password” link on the bottom left of the screen.
