Skype is software that allows users to place and receive voice and video phone calls over the Internet for free. Multiple users may use the same Skype application to gain access to their Skype account. To use multiple accounts with Skype, the user simply changes the username on the Skype Sign-in page. A folder is created for each Skype account accessed on a computer. This folder contains all settings pertaining to the specific user. Remove a Skype profile from a computer if you no longer wish to use or have others use or access the account.
