Skype down with surprise sign in problems

We can see that Skype is down on September 21 with some surprise and unexpected connection problems. Thousands of users are already complaining that they cannot sign in to Skype right now, so hopefully this outage won’t last long.

You only need to take a quick look on social media to see that this appears to be a global Skype outage on September 21.

There’s no sign of a Skype status update yet on the official Skype Support Twitter page, but we have a feeling that this will change within the hour if the problems continue.

At the time of writing, Skype is unresponsive for us so give us your experiences with what the app is displaying for you right now in your area.

Are you having problems logging into Skype today or not? We will update this with the latest updates as soon as Skype acknowledges the outage.

Update 1: Skype now acknowledges the issue and states that they are working on a quick fix for everyone.

Still down in Canada at the time I am writing this….. I think your statement “it looks like Skype has finally fixed the problems” is incorrect. All they did in that very brief post was acknowledge they had an issue and that they were working to fix it. They did not say “it was fixed” and I think it is not. Your really far to optimistic for a tech blogger….. 10:1 they are down due to a failed NSA related upgrade. Ever since skype starting routing through the NSA servers, file transfers have been really slow, especially in the first… Read more »

USA – Skype is down here across 60 people of whom I work with, we all appear offline to each other, we can send IMs, it appears as though it’s trying to connect to the internet, though my internet is stable, with no issues on that end.

I have been experiencing Skype problems for some time now. And today I cannot use it – I am signed-in but it shows I am offline but in reality my internet is working perfectly fine on all devises. Since Skype joined Microsoft it has not performed as well as before it was bought out. Very disappointing, and I am thinking of switching to other apps that perhaps have more reliability at the moment.

Skype for desktop is down but I’m able to sign in from the web and the
phone version. I’m guessing they use different server clusters for
different platforms and desktop version servers are down.

Yeah, skype’s down here too. More specifically: Skype is showing the status icon as the swirling arrows. If skype is currently doing this to you /DO NOT/ sign out of skype. If you do, you will not be able to sign back into skype.
