How do I get started on Skype?

Skype is a great tool. Here’s how you get started:

Create your Account

  1. Open your browser

  2. Go to the Skype homepage, by typing into your browser bar.

  3. The Skype homepage will load. Click on either the ‘Get Started’ or ‘Join Us’ link.

  4. You will be asked for your email address and to agree to the terms and conditions. Put these in. If you don't have an email address - read our guide Setting up a Gmail Account.

  5. Skype will now ask you to enter some details and create a Username and Password. Tip: You can choose how much personal information you share and the contact details other Skype users can see. For example, you may not want to add your date of birth.

  6. Now you have created your Skype Account. Make sure you note down your username and password details and keep them somewhere safe.
