Skype Support

Skype Support is a team of employees that help users to solve various problems, associated with the program, account or Skype services. They provide free technical support only via e-mail or online chat (note, they don’t offer assistance by phone, and it doesn’t make sense to look for the technical support number).

There are two options of appeal to Skype support, and they directly depend on the answer to the following question: “Have you access to your account?”
1. YES (I can log in to my account) 2. NO (I have neither access nor account)
If you are able to login to your Skype account (to exclude any software errors, first of all try to login on Skype for Web), to contact Skype support, go to the following link needslogin=true

If you select this option, before contacting Skype support you will have to enter your login and password. After that you will be able to choose any of the available topics.
If you don’t remember your password, your account has been hacked or there is an error of unrecognized log in data, you should contact the technical support by the following link needslogin=false

In this case, you won’t have to enter your login and password, but you can choose only one of the two topics: “The account and password” or “Security and privacy”.


Currently there are 3 official sources for solving problems:
  1. Help for Skype →
  2. Community →
  3. Customer Support →

Before contacting the customer support, you should check out the first two sources and try to find the answer by yourself. The fact is that there are already solutions for most problems on the “user guids” website or in the community. Of course, it doesn’t concern individual issues, such as account hijacking, deleting or blocking your account, payments, subscriptions, partnerships and others.

  • Payments
    • Contingency fees

    Dear Skype Support,
    My questions are: How are Skype rates determined. Is there a particular scientific method for calculating the rates? How come rates differ?

      Hi! Please note that this is an unofficial blog and information published here is not official. If you wish to contact the official support, follow the URL addresses specified in article.

      Nevertheless, I think I can answer your question, but not sure that I understood it correctly. If you asking why rates differ while calling to the same number, maybe this is because Skype uses per-minute billing. Moreover, rates may differ if you call different in the same country, and even in the same city. If you want to find out more details about call rates, please visit our page: Skype call rates. In addition, we have a call cost calculator which help you to know for sure how much costs a call.

      And the last, but the most important thing is that the official page of Skype call rates can be found here:
