Microsoft has updated Skype so that your IP address is now hidden, it was revealed back in 2012 that hackers could acquire your IP address.
Skype has offered the option to manually hide your IP address for some time and now the company has turned this feature on by default.
Skype is fully committed to delivering as safe and secure of an experience as possible to our customers. We have recently introduced the ability to hide a Skype user’s IP address and we’ve set this as a default status in the latest versions of Skype.
Starting with this update to Skype and moving forward, your IP address will be kept hidden from Skype users. This measure will help prevent individuals from obtaining a Skype ID and resolving to an IP address.
You can find out more details about the recent changes that have been made to Skype over at their official blog at the link below.
