How to Retrieve a Skype Username


If it's been awhile since you used Skype to communicate with friends abroad or family back home, you might draw a big blank when it's time to type in your Skype username. Skype requires a username and password from users to log in to the service. You choose this username and password when you register for a Skype account. By using Skype's recovery options and the email address used to register the account, you can retrieve your Skype username with ease.

  • Navigate to the Skype homepage online at

  • Click "Sign In."

  • Click "Forgotten your Skype Name?" under the Skype Name entry box.

  • Type the email address you used to register the account in the box that appears. Click "Get Skype Name." Skype will email you a link to that address to recover your username.

  • Click on the link inside the email sent by Skype. A page will open displaying your username.
