Skype Acknowledges Security Issues with Android App, Begins Work on a Fix

As many of you know by now, Skype was outed as having one of the least secure apps on Android, and has already issued a statement to help ease the minds of its users.  They definitely didn’t deny any of it and are now working hard to make sure that the personal information of their 10million+ users is safe and secure.  They even took a page from our book and are also advising against late night “sexy girl pictures” searches in the Android Market.

    Skype’s far from the only developer with insecure Android apps. The official Twitter & Facebook apps are atrocious also.

    Is there anything that you can use to video chat on the thunderbolt? I tried the Skype that was featured here but the video doesn’t work on it, just voice. Tried it for a day with my daughter but couldn’t get it to work properly.

        In the future, what you can do is flag the comment. Go to the bottom left corner of the comment and an option to flag should appear. Click and then click yes I want to flag the comment. This will alert those moderating that the comment might be inappropriate. And it will also hide it (not sure if it needs more than one flag to hide or not) and it will say the comment was flagged for review. So it should hide it until the mods can review it if enough people click flag.

      Oh Skype is out alright… and I can’t delete it from my non-front camera DROIDX. Anyways when on my computer talking to my business partner in Japan, I use Google video chat. So Skype can go hump itself in my opinion.
