1. PLEASE READ

Skype is a telecommunication application that has a narrow & stringent set of rules that affect implementing Two-Factor Authentication. Make sure you have met the criteria before attempting to implement the security feature.

  • You must have a Microsoft account
  • You are using Edge as your browser. Two Factor Authentication is not available on any other browser

If you DON’T meet the requirements, please skip the next step and jump to the second step.

If you DO meet the requirements, please reference the links below to learn how to implement Multi-Factor Authentication for Skype.

2. Using Microsoft as Security for Skype

Because Microsoft accounts are tied to Skype, it is possible to implement Two-Factor Authentication indirectly. Insead, enable Two-Factor Authentication for your Microsoft Account. Please reference the Microsoft TOTP Guide.
