When using Skype, we can log in to the same account from multiple PCs. Currently I have one PC logged into Skype with my account. The problem is that it was a laptop of my relatives and I cannot access it for now.

How can I sign out of Skype from everywhere logged in to my account?

Apparently if you change your password and then sign out this will result in the other session being logged out, see: How can I get Skype to log out from another location?

Change your password to make remote Skype clients sign out

  1. Go to File | Change Password
  2. Follow the instructions to change your password.
  3. Now sign out using File | Sign Out
  4. Wait a minute or so
  5. Then sign in again using your new password.
  6. After a short period of time any remote Skype clients that were logged into your Skype username should stop working. They will require the new password in order to log in again.

Sign out all other instances except the current one. This will also stop push notifications on all other instances1.

To check your current logged in places, run:

I doesn't seem to work. I typed it on my PC, and then I typed /showlocations and it told me that I'm logged in at one place - this PC. Then, I typed /showlocations on my Android phone and it told me that I'm logged in at two places - the phone and the PC. – Iulian Onofrei Oct 18 '14 at 22:22
In the current Skype version ( you can use /showplaces to list active sessions. The /remotelogout still works. – wigy Jan 23 '15 at 8:57
