Expert:  Aaron B replied 7 years ago.

You can try this on both your computer and mobile device. In Skype where you go to have chats or make calls, click in the top blue bar which is the 6th option of "Tools", then slide down to choose "Options", then "Privacy". Now switch to the right column for "Keep History For" which is next to the "allow IMs from".

Click on arrow and choose "No History" in the left box, and then press "Clear History" in the right box. Then choose to "Delete" when it comes up and lastly, go down to press the "Save" button. Go and check to find all history of calls, sms, etc. deleted.

You can do this either after every call, sms, im, or every now and then in bulk. The Skype software on your computer and the Skype mobile software are different. However, as long as you are logged into the same Skype account you should be seeing the same sms, im, calls, etc.

this is not the case>>>my cell phone does not have the same history as my computer. on the cell phone you can close the im but when the same person leaves a new im the information is preceeded by the old ims...what i want to know is how to earse that old conversation from my blackberry.



Expert:  Aaron B replied 7 years ago.

You can try to clear your history via the following instructions. Without knowing what version of Skype you have installed you might need to look around your Skype settings. You can try this both on your phone and computer.
  • Open Skype
  • Click on “Tools”,
  • Click on “Options”,
  • On your left, click on “IM & SMS” tab,
  • Then click on “IM Settings”,
  • Click on the “Clear history” button on your right
Another possibility is to go to your "Privacy" settings in Skype and look for an option called "Keep chat history for...". You can select "Disable History".
