Hello,

I sign in to my Skype account with a Yahoo email. I know that Microsoft accounts are deleted after 2 years of inactivity (and Skype is gone with them). I read that Skype will not be deleted due to inactivity on it's own, because it is merged with the Microsoft account, but what happens if I use Yahoo to login? Will my Skype be deleted after 2 years?

Thank you!

P.s- I need my Skype to be deleted, I cannot access it, nor my Yahoo, so I count on inactivity to delete it.



System Configuration: Windows / Chrome 83.0.4103.14

Hello, even if you are using a Yahoo account it should be deleted.

To add some further clarity to how long your account has to be inactive before being deleted, I found this info:

If the last time you signed in was:
  • Before June 2014, it will be removed after 1 year of inactivity
  • Between June 2014 - August 2015
  • After August 2015, it will be deleted after 5 years of inactivity!
