His is really one of the things that I enjoy the most about Skype, since it is possible to chat with friends, family members, and coworkers from either a PC or a smartphone, meaning that no matter where you’re, it is still possible to initiate a text conversation or a video telephone.
Provided that you use the exact same accounts, you can be logged in on Skype on several devices at the exact same time, with all conversations and messages synced automatically between them. This means you could technically begin a dialog on a PC and then depart and continue from where you left off on a mobile device.
Despite supplying super-advanced video calling capabilities, Skype can also play the part of an instant messaging platform, and this cross-platform service certainly is useful.
But there is also a downside. Whenever you stop using one device without manually registering, you are still logged in on others, meaning you stay available on Skype and anybody can still message you. Though this is indeed a beneficial feature for people who rely on Skype as the primary messaging support, it is not as useful for those using the service for work and that only need to go offline for a couple hours daily.
Microsoft doesn’t provide dedicated alternatives to easily sign from Skype from all of your devices at the same time, so the only solution would be to do it on all of them individually. To put it differently, you must click on the sign button on your computer, notebook, and smartphones whenever you need to go offline.
Undeniably, this is not actually the most convenient solution, and it obviously takes too much time to do this on a daily basis.
In the past, logging from Skype sessions was possible using a command sent in a dialog window. Just typing command /remotelogout logged out all devices, permitting you to use only the one.
For some reason, this command no longer works, and the only way to sign out of your Skype devices remotely is… to change your account password. As odd as that may seem, this is the only way to do it, and Microsoft probably provides it as a workaround in case someone steals your device or things like that.
