  3. 3
    Alternatively, just hold your finger on the Home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    This takes us to the Home screen, which will look a bit different from this one, because it's personalized
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    In this case, we need to find our Skype icon
    .
    The icon itself is light blue with a blue "S" inside a white bubble in the center.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Just tap that to open Skype
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    It may take us to the sign in screen, which is referred to in another video
    .
    It may also take us to a screen that lists all of the recent contacts.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    What we need to do is go to the top right-hand corner, where we have our profile picture
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Tap that to open up the new menu
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    What we should do now is go down to these few options, looking for "My account" with a little man on the left-hand side in blue
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Press that to open up our account
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    This may take some time to load because they have quite a lot of things to offer
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    For now, tap to open the top option, "Profile", which is in blue
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Once at the Profile details, we can go ahead and edit what we like
    .
    It automatically tells us how complete the Profile is. This one is only 70% because not every single box is filled in.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Just scroll down and tap here in the "About" section to enter your name
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap here again on the second box
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    We can just simply delete accordingly
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Next, we can type whatever surname we choose
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Press "Done", in the blue here on the top right side of the gray window
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Alternatively, we can press "Go", in the blue here
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    This shows our profile has been updated and it automatically saves
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    We can select "Gender" by tapping the drop down menu and scrolling
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Select "Birthday" by scrolling
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    We can either press "Clear" on the right-hand side, or "Done"
    .
    Done will obviously save.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    We can press "English" in order to choose a different language to talk in or for Skype to recognize
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Since we only need English, we will choose that
    .

  27. 27
    Press "Done"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    We can tap here, in the "About me" section and just write a little bit about ourselves
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    Again, when you're happy, press "Done"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    In "Location", we can press on the box and type the name of city
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    We'll just say Oxford by typing it in on the keypad
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    State can be clicked
    .
    That's because it's an American piece of software, so it says "State" instead. We can type what we like, accordingly.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    Choose the Country/Region, whichever one we like, in this scroll menu
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    We've selected "United Kingdom"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Enter an Email address, or change an Email address accordingly
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    There are additional options for adding another "Email address", "Mobile phone", "Home phone" or an "Office phone number"
    .
    We can just click any of these and start typing, as seen here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    Just tap the box for an item and it brings up the keypad
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    What we can do here in the "About" section when we scroll to the top of the screen is tap where it says "Public"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  39. 39
    Scroll down to see what everyone else will see when "Location" is also "Public"
    .
    This is why these options aren't actually compulsory because they don't have to be filled in, if not wanted.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    Whereas for "Contact" details, it says on the right-hand side, "Contacts only" with a little picture of the contacts book again
    .
    This way only our Contacts can see our Email address and phone numbers.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    When satisfied with all of that, just go to the blue bar that says "Save changes"
    .
    It saves all of the changes made, if any.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  42. 42
    When it's finished loading there is a green bar at the top saying our Profile has been updated
    .
    It will have a green tick or check on the left-hand side.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
