Skype automatically saves your conversation history, which consists of all of your instant messages, transferred files, voicemails and calls. To help protect your privacy, remove conversations from your list if you no longer need to refer to them. Those who use a Mac can delete the entire conversation history or just specific items. Windows users only have the option to remove their entire conversation history from their lists.
