Contacts and Safety Tips
Who do you know on Skype? Maybe a friend or family member? It's time to add them to your contacts. Adding contacts—or importing them from services like Facebook or Outlook—is the first step toward actually using Skype to call, chat, and video conference with the people you care about.
On Skype, you add contacts to your account—and they add you to theirs—via contact requests. When you receive a request, it's displayed as a notification above the Contacts tab. Just click the notification to open a pane where you can add, ignore, or block the person.
