Recover Skype password on PC


The easiest way to recover your Skype password is from your computer. This way, you can set up a new password or start the procedure to recover your account if you are unable to verify your identity.

To proceed and recover the password to your Skype account, start the program installed on your computer and click the Sign in or Create an account button. In the new screen that appears, enter your username, phone number or email address associated with your account in the Email, Phone or Skype field and click the Next button, then choose Forgot your password, make sure the information in the Recover your account screen is correct and click the Next button.

Now choose the procedure to verify your identity by placing a check mark next to one of the options between SMS to [phone number], Call to [ phone number ] and Send email to [email address ]. If you have not assigned a secondary phone number or email address to your Skype account, you may not see all of the above options.

If you have chosen to verify your identity via text message or phone call, enter the last 4 digits of your phone number in the field provided and click the send code button. If you checked the box next to Send email to [email address], enter the missing part of your email address and click the Send Code button.


Whatever your choice, after receiving your 7-digit verification code, enter it in the "Enter code" field and click the "Next" button. If you have problems with the method chosen above, select Use a different verification option to return to the previous screen and check the box next to another option to verify your identity.


Now, enter your new password (minimum 8 characters including uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers and symbols) to use to access your account in the New Password and Confirm Password fields and click the Next button. The message Your account has been recovered will confirm that you have changed your password. Then, in the Next button, enter your login details in the Email, Phone or Skype and Password fields and click the Sign In button to access your Skype account.

On the new page that opens, enter the username, email address or phone number associated with your Skype account in the Email, Phone or Skype field and click the Next button.

In the new screen that appears, enter the email address used to create your account in the Which email address did you use to sign up for Skype? section. Enter the first and last names of three contacts in your Skype account contact list and check one of the options between No and Yes in Have you ever made a Skype payment?
