Skype Reveals Full Support for Microsoft Accounts
Skype, which is a Microsoft owned company, has revealed that it now fully supports Microsoft accounts. Users who do not currently have access to Skype can register for the service by using their credentials associated with a Microsoft account. This allows users to simplify their login process, as it is one less username and password to remember, while also providing users with notable features. Not only does signing in into Skype with a Microsoft account provide users with a seamless transfer of their personal settings and contacts, the account offers two-step verification for security as well as enhanced password recovery.
Users who do not have a Microsoft account can still register for Skype by using a Facebook account.
