You just created a Skype account then after awhile you feel the account you’ve created is not good and you don’t want to use it anymore. You want to delete the Skype account permanently but you don’t know how. Even from the community forum itself does not help very much.
Actually, the moment you create Skype account, you cannot deactivate, delete, cancel or change your usernames to something else. The only thing that you can do is abandon the account. Yes, really. Just leave the account and create another one because it allows you to create as many accounts as you want.
However, although you cannot delete your Skype account, Skype allows users to remove all your personal information contained in your profile, such as your full name, email address, or phone number. So when people searching you in Skype using your personal information, (ie: full name) he will not be able to find you unless if he using your Skype name as the keyword search.
