Is Skype safe for private chat?
All Skype-to-Skype voice, video, file transfers and instant messages are encrypted. This protects you from potential eavesdropping by malicious users. If you make a call from Skype to mobile and landline phones, the part of your call that takes place over the PSTN (the ordinary phone network) is not encrypted.
Can you Skype anonymously?
In the Manage features section, click Caller ID. If this link is not displayed, go to the caller identification settings page to ensure that the link is displayed. Click Deactivate Caller ID. No number will now be displayed when you call mobiles or landlines from Skype.
