Your Skype profile contacts the information that you want to be publicly available to any Skype user. It can include your full name, gender, birthday and location, as well as phone numbers, your website if you have one and how many Skype contacts you have. To find out how many Skype contacts one of your contacts has, you can look at their profile, whether they are online or off.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open Skype. Enter your Skype name and password in the text boxes, and click "Sign In."

  2. 2

    Right-click one of your contacts. The contact can be signed into Skype or not.

  3. 3

    Click "View Profile." The user's number of contacts is listed under her location. Click Close to close the profile.

Tips and warnings

  • You can hide the number of contacts you have. Click "File," then "Edit Your Profile." Uncheck "Show How Many Contacts I Have," and click "Update."
