Another way to “surely” delete your Skype chat log or history for your iOS or Android mobile devices, a little tricky though. You will need your device and desktop computer to do this trick.
1. First, you will need to sign-out your Skype account from your mobile device.
2. Then go to your computer and sign-in your Skype account there.
3. Click on Tools -> Options or press CTRL + “+” simultaneously.
4. Once the Skype Options window opens, navigate down until you see “Privacy“.
5. Normally, you will only see 2 options under Privacy Settings so you need to click the “Show advanced options“.
6. After you click that, you will see more options. The thing you need to focus on is the “Keep history for“.
Remember that if you opt to use this option above, you will surely delete “ALL” types of conversations (group or single chat conversation). So, you have to be really sure and I mean really sure you wanted to do this.
