Skype Now Hides IP By Default

Microsoft has finally updated Skype so that your IP addresses is now hidden by default. This will no doubt be good news to the gamers and streamers out there that have been targets of DDoS attacks.

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.
