When I delete a contact from Skype, is this contact informed?

If so, can I delete without informing him?


If you are deleting a contact from your Skype, it won't inform.

If you are not really interested in deleting permanently, refer this answer How to hide(not remove) any contact from Skype list? for some workaround to make user hide.

  • Al right, so if I delete a friend from Skype, he won't be informed (and will I be deleted from his contacts list ?) – aneuryzm Dec 29 '11 at 13:45
  • @Patrick - He would have to remove you from his list. You can't remove yourself from another person's friends list. – Ramhound Dec 29 '11 at 14:38

    So, once I've given the permission to add myself, I can't anymore to be remove myself and my privacy is compromised ? – aneuryzm Dec 29 '11 at 15:45

    @Patrick If you tell someone your phone number, how would you 'un-tell' them? :) You can make a piece of private information public once, and there's no take-backs. ;) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 29 '11 at 17:29

    A phone number has not my picture, other informations I'm going to update, etc.. but is not a big problem – aneuryzm Dec 29 '11 at 19:27

If you delete them, they will know, since there will be a question mark on your name.
