    History us locate under all your last chats on right inside
    Clik on history them all names of contact with history wil appear on scream
    Top right inside clik on adit and little red marks will appear in front of every name , clik on the one you want to delete history

  3. Nads says:

    Even after doing all of the above if you click on the contact’s name and open the chat all the conversation appears again. So chat ISN’T permanently deleted.

  4. Marek Paul says:

    This procedure for deleting chat history does NOT work. The chat history only appears to be deleted. It actually comes back very quickly.

      I think there is a bug in skype for ipad 2, chat histories definately do not get deleted permanantly. I agree with Nads and Mareks findings, this is a very serious flaw! Now I can’t cheat on my wife secretly ;)

        I have the same problem. I chatted using my Mac desk top. but everything got copies on my iPad 2. Although I was able to delta history on my desk top, i am unable to do it in ipad2. i do hope a solution will be found soon!

  5. David says:

    Such a poor answer. Where is the history tab?

  6. Deirdre says:

    Chat history appears to be cleared but reappears again.

  7. Rick says:

    Seems to have worked for me but will let you know if it comes back

    I am really surprised that Skype would mislead its users in the way it has with the response to this issue. The users in this thread are absolutely correct when they say that there is no way to erase the message history in Skype for ipad2. It is so frustrating that there is not simply a button to delete the history permanently or a setting to not save history. I tried logging out and back in but the history persists. I see no other choice but to delete the app. Shame on you, Skype.

  9. Margaret says:

    I have deleted Skype and then reinstalled it and the chat history still does not go away plus it does not come up whenyou click on history. Any other ideas?

  10. Ramonastudio says:

    I click the history tab and it was empty but the chat history still on the left side

  11. HCSC says:

    I agree with Ramonastudio. I have the same problem.

    Hello,

    this is jour help:
    Open the history tab, locate the name which you what to delete chat with. Press and sweep your finger to right while still touching the screen. A red sign appears with the word “Clear”. Touch it and chat will be sent to history tab. If you want to delete it permanently, touch the History tab, go to the right upper corner and press edit. Then select the chat you want to delete.

    But…… it does not work There appears no red sign

    What to do now?

  13. Ina says:

    Swipe your finger to the right on the chat you want to delete. It will say “close”. Press close button. This does not delete the chat but it will now appear under “history”.
    Now, click “history” and swipe your finger to the right on the conversation you want to delete. On the right a “delete” button will appear. Click it and the history on your ipad should be gone.

  14. De Hays says:

    First….
    Login from your laptop, pc or mac, go to >> tools >> options >> privacy > and where it says clear history > click on it and also you can choose for how long to keep history, just select “no history”
    Save and exit.

    Second….
    even though you selected no history but the only way to get rid off the history is by “signing out” and “quitting the program” if you just sign out, it doesn’t clear the history.

    All the above must be done from your computer first.

    Third….
    Now back to your cell phone … go to applications >> skype >> clear cache and clear data.

    and there you have it ..

    That’s the only way I found to clear the chat/messaging/call history from skype on cell phones.

    Good Luck

    I don’t want to delete my chat history, I want to be able to edit it. There is some information that I would like to keep in my chat history. As of yet, that is not possible.

  16. ShanksPranks says:

    I tried something along the lines of:

    1. Delete the chat from History.
    2. Delete Skype
    3. Download Skype
    4. Hey Presto
