    Once the lock screen is up, we can simply swipe and enter the passcode, or just hold the finger into the home button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner as well.

    Once we are at the home screen, it is just a case of finding the Skype app, which in my case is in a folder.
    We can see that the icon itself is light blue and white with a blue S in the center as well.

    Tap the icon to open the app.
    It will either take us to this screen, where it has a list of most recent contacts, or it will take us to the sign in screen, in which case you can refer to my other video where I walk you through how to sign in.
