How to create a Skype account?

Registration in Skype is filling out a simple form in order to create a new Skype account. This process takes no more than 1-2 minutes and is not difficult at all. You can make a Skype account in different ways (e.g., in Skype for Android, Mac and iOS the registration form is available in the app itself), but in this guide I will tell you about a universal method of registration, when an account is created in the browser on the official website.
How to create a Skype account?

Before continuing, I want to draw your attention to the following:
  • No matter where and how you have created your account, it can help to log in on any computer, tablet, phone, or browser.

  • With one email address, you can register multiple Skype accounts with the ability to use all of them at the same time.

  • If you want your friends to find you in Skype easier, when filling in the form, specify only valid data.

So, to create a Skype account:
  1. Open the page
    I have expressly brought this link that the registration form was in English. But the page is also available in other languages, including Deutsch, Spanish and French.

  2. Enter your name and surname
    This information is mandatory, and as I have already said, you should enter valid data that you might be found easier. If you wish to remain anonymous enter only your initials.
    Create a Skype account: First name and last name

  3. Enter your email address
    It is required too, but in contrast to the name, it is not shown to anyone. You need email to regain access to your account. In principle, it is possible to register without a real email address because it is not checked, but I strongly don’t recommend doing so.

    By the way, in this step you can run into a problem with the field "Repeat email" — this field is not “activated”, if you insert an email, using the right mouse click. Therefore, either enter it manually, or press Ctrl+V.
    Create a Skype account: Email address

  4. Specify your Profile data
    Here only the country and the language are required, enter your city and date of birth, only if you want. These data are visible to all users, so if you want your friends to find you, enter valid data.
    Create a Skype account: Profile data

  5. Think of Skype Login
    The most important step in the registration process is to invent your Skype username. No matter what an account is created for, keep in mind that unlike the other data, a Skype username cannot be changed. And carefully consider, how your username will look, for example, on business cards or on your contact page (I mean that Login alpha_male_007, to say the least, doesn’t quite fit a company director, a teacher or any "serious man").

  6. Enter the password
    It is no less important step. Specify a strong password that the attackers didn’t guess it. And as in the case of the email address, manually fill out the field "Repeat password".
    Create a Skype account: Password

  7. Confirm the newsletter subscription
    If you don’t wish to receive news about the Skype program or special offers, uncheck the box next to "Get Messages" option.

  8. Pass antispam check
    In this step, enter the symbols, shown in the picture, to prove that you are a human being and not a bot. The letter case doesn’t matter, so you can write the code using lower case letters.
    Create a Skype account: Antispam check

  9. Complete the registration
    The last thing left to do is to confirm that you agree to the Skype terms by pressing "I agree – Next" button.

If everything is filled out correctly, and you haven’t made any mistakes, your account will be created immediately. After this download Skype and communicate with friends for free.

        Unfortunately, the old registration form does not work any more. Please read details here: The developers have abolished username when registering on Skype.

    Hi, so now when you create a Skype account there's a different layout, it lets me create an account with my phone number or email, and I can't choose a username. Is there a way to get a custom username/Skype name now in September 2016? Thanks ^-^

      Hi Emily! Unfortunately, recently developers have abolished username when registering on Skype and thus officially you cannot specify your custom username. Please read details on this page (as well I recommend you to read comments, because edwado said that is still possible to specify the username if an old Skype version is used).
