Android Data Recovery
More often than not, we tend to forget some of the passwords that we created ourselves. Usually this happens with online accounts that require a username and password. Log into Skype account on Android is one of the best examples for this issue. But there’s no need to worry if you’ve forgotten your Skype password, the following guide will go through the steps that you need to do in order to get back the access to your Skype account.
How to Change Your Forgotten Skype Password
Step 1：Go to the Skype Sign in interface, and go to Problems Signing In.
Step 2: Type in your registered email address and click Continue. And a recovery email will be sent to your registered email with a temporary code.
Step 3: Now check and see if you get the email. It might be in the junk or spam folder. In the email, you will see the below interface, click on the link called “follow this link”. If that doesn’t work, try entering the code manually on your phone. Please note that the code only lasts for three hours.
Step 4: Now you will see your Skype accounts associated with the registered email. Go to Reset password and you can enter a new Skype password. When you finished, click on Save. Then, you can go and log in Skype with your new password.
Note: If the email address that you have registered for your Skype account is no longer active, all you can do is to contact their customer service at once so that they can register the current email that you are using to your Skype account. And all the password reset information will be mailed to the newly registered email address.
