I would like to know if any one else has encountered the same problem.
I have been using skype on my regular pc for many years now and I have the strongest possible security settings on my account, i.e. only people on my contact list can message me or call me. I only have a few family members and friends as contacts with whom I converse regularly. I NEVER give out my skype name and I DON'T add strangers.
With the new skype it is of course happening that many strangers from all over the world ask to be added as your friend. I just always blocked these people immediately from my skype account on the pc so that they cannot try and add me again.
BUT, my real problem is with Skype for Ipad which I have been using for about a year now. It happens regularly (about once a week) that I receive a pop up message on my Ipad that some one is calling me on skype, or I later see that I have missed calls from people NOT on my contact list! How is this possible?
I even went back to the Skype account settings on my PC a few times just to make sure that nothing has been changed to my security settings!
I find it kind of creepy and invasive.
Anybody with any thoughts on this?
