I've just noticed that many people are sharing their Skype on posts, threads, etc.
Skype is a VoIP (Voice over IP) program, due to the nature of it, when you call/videocall somebody on Skype, you're both connecting to each other with your IP addresses, which can be viewed with a connection tracking program.

What's even worse is, there are some web-based 'Skype resolvers' which can grab an IP address without even calling, using the Skype API, just with a Skype username.

Your IP address is just like a real address, you should keep it safe from other people. Here's why:

With an IP address you can track the real address of a person
With an IP address you can knock someone offline


Here's what you can do to protect yourself (aside from not sharing your Skype publicly):
In Skype, go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection and check 'Allow direct connections to your contacts only'.

Keep your address safe, only share your Skype in private messages.
If you use proxies for your SEO tools, spare one of them and use it for Skype.

The best is people that are sharing the username in the signature. WTF? They haven't heard about h@cking skype? Is the easiest thing to do for A Social Engineer. We should keep our user safe!
