All this from the comfort of a PC or mobile phone, by logging in with various platforms. This program has a free use that is understood and supported by its users, however despite constantly updating Skype to its latest version, during its use it is quite common for a series of connection problems to arise, which can hinder its functionality. and, depending on it, turn it into a negative experience.

In this post we will explain what are the possible causes and solutions for when yours Skype session does not start immediately.



Verify that the credentials are correct

A common mistake within users is the mistake within credentials. This is what we mean by username, password, or common login method. It is quite normal for the first error to be found in this example and not in any other type of error.

The usual thing is that when this happens, the skype system displays a warning message on its screen, where it also specifies the error, all this so that the user can check and re-enter their credentials correctly.

If the problem with this part is that you are having trouble remembering the correct information, you just need to click on the button called »Login Problems» and then follow the instructions.

Problems connecting to the Internet

In general, the access to Skype it does not work properly when there is a slow internet connection or when it does not work at all. Although Skype will not immediately notify you of this error, you should verify that it is in order before signing in again.

It is important to note that although Skype works on the web, to access its interface the application requires that the user have an acceptable internet connection and that they are always connected.



If you want to test your web connection, you just have to try entering yours email or the main page of google. If both pages open normally, the problem may be different.

You have an open session on another device

This is a fairly common mistake, since the same account is usually opened on your desktop PC and on your mobile. However, when this happens it is quite easy to fix, since you only need to close one of the accounts so that the other has seamless access.


Your PC may have some general problems

If even with all of the above mentioned, you are still unable to navigate through the login screen within Skype, it is possible that the existing problem is internal. This refers to the fact that your PC has some kind of problem in terms of functionality, permissions granted and also with the way it connects with the server Skype internal.

Like any other software costs., Skype generally requires certain resources such as computer memory to function properly.


It's important to pay attention to things like, for example, your PC takes longer than normal to respond, as that means you have a small but significant memory problem, which can affect how you log into your Skype account.
