‘Skype‘ is an online phone service with many different plans, from free to subscription, that caters to the needs of the user. It provides a service that allows you to make and receive calls as well as retrieving voice mail. However, this does not suit everyone and it becomes necessary for a Skype account to be deleted. So, how does one do this?
1. To cancel your subscription, first you must log into your account, using your username and password, and click on to ‘Subscription settings‘ on the right hand side of the page.
2. Once your settings page is open, select ‘cancel subscription‘ a new screen will open and you will be asked if you are sure that this is what you want to do. Click the ‘Yes‘ button and you will be prompted through the cancellation process.
3. You will also need to disable the auto-recharge and to do this, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on ‘view settings‘ this will take you to the auto-recharge page where you can click the ‘Disable‘ auto recharge link.
4. Wherever you are funding your ‘skype’ account, be it from your bank or paypal, don’t forget to cancel the payments.
If it is funded from paypal, you can log into your account and go to the profile tab, select ‘pay list’ from the center of the next page. Search for Skype in your list and click the link to change the billing. Click the ‘cancel’ link under status in order to disable any further payments being allowed to Skype.
Now, you may still use the ‘free’ skype service, where you can talk to other skype users. Here is a little tip for you, if you do not want your profile to be seen by other users, you can have it wiped from the skype system by refraining from using skype for a period of 10 days, after this time, profiles are automatically deleted.
