Skype is a free video and chat program that is easy to use. Creating an account can be difficult, read this article to help you with that.
Step 1. Go to Skype.com to get started
At the top right of the screen is written in blue "Register". Click on this.
Step 2. Fill in your personal details
Don't worry, all information is confidential unless it is clearly stated that it is visible to third parties, or you give explicit permission.
- You also have the option to sign in with your Facebook or Microsoft account. In that case, this information will be used to create your Skype account.
Step 3. Fill in your profile information
Enter your date of birth, gender, country, city, language and, if applicable, your telephone number. The fields with an asterisk are required. All other fields are optional.
Choose the right country. If you travel a lot, choose the country from which you will use Skype the most
Step 4. Indicate how often you plan to use Skype
Here you can choose whether you think you will use Skype for "personal" or "business" conversations. This is an optional field.
Step 5. Make up a Skype Name and Password
Note: you can no longer change your Skype name, so don't choose a weird name, because that will always stick to you.
Enter a password. The password must be at least 6 characters, including 1 number. When choosing a password, note that you will see: "Password Strength: Good". "Medium" is also allowed, but "Good" is much safer. If the password is "Weak" you will not be able to continue creating an account
