Skype - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
Privacy violations with video chat and comandeering computer webcam with no permissions asked or given

This is a Complaint / Review about Skype.

Skype takes pictures and records video of its customers / users who download free software without asking their permission first. When one is on a household computer this is even more of a privacy invasion as there is no expectation the user will be clothed. I cannot find a way to easily disable the Skype video function on my Windows 7. I don't want it. I'm required to use Skype messaging and sometimes voice calls for international employment reasons.Skype needs to ask permission before recording video or taking pictures. It tries to set one's profile picture( available to all Skype users on the web) based on a picture it takes without requesting permission. Due to facial recognition technology and privacy concerns I never put personal photos on the web. Almost all other Windows/ MS software asks permission before it does things, and due to privacy concerns it is especially important that the Skype software deploys its video capacities only with consumer permission.
