[solved] Skype-Facebook interconnection

Recommended Posts

It seems that I'm getting contacts from Facebook show up on my Skype address book, and vice versa, having skype contacts send me friend requests on Facebook.

 

 

How do I stop this? I really don't want my facebook being linked to my skype account.

 

I swear I'm not even using the same email address for the two accounts, how are they getting connected

Do you have a contact/address book on your computer? I know that on my iMac the address book can sync across platforms. Same with my phone, facebook contacts can sync to regular mobile contacts. My advice would be to check facebook settings on your mobile/computer and or look at any address books you have and their settings.

Windows pc, I'm not sure what address book I may have, if any.

clicking on the blue gear only shows a "Manage hidden updates" selection which I can't even click because it's greyed out.

 

Nor do I see the blue "Find Facebook Friends" button. The only thing shown on skype home is status updates.

 

 

I swear skype is malware, and I really wish people would stop using it. <_<

Apparently, the issue was caused by the Skype app on mobile (using android) and not on PC.

 

 

Anyone using Skype on mobile, check your settings immediately because there are some VERY questionable defaults with regard to privacy.
