Identity Safe and Skype

Does anyone know if it's possible to store my Skype login id and password in NIS Identity Safe, so that it gets automatically filled in when I launch Skype?

Hi,
Haven't tried that one. If it's like most sites it should work. If you try it, please do report back and let us know how it goes

Thanks

Re: Identity Safe and Skype

I suspect the reason that the login id and password don't get filled in by ID Safe is because Skype itself is really an application program (like Word or Excel), not a web page (even though Skype uses the internet to link two users). Just a thought.

FWIW, there are PW management solutions by "other vendors" that address this ...

Skype already has an option entitled "Sign me in when Skype starts" that will log you in automatically.

The "Sign me in when Skype starts" only autofills my Skype name - I have to enter my password manually each time.

If you quit Skype by right clicking the system tray icon, rather than signing out, it should remember your name and password when you next launch the program.

That seems to work - many thanks.

(I had tried that before, but wasn't sure whether it logged me out and then logged me in the next time, or whether it just left me logged in all the time.  I must admit, it's not too clear which of these scenarios is actually the case).
