Skype will go through your Android address book

Crap...

Microsoft's Skype's Division has announced the latest version of its Android Skype client.

Skype for Android 5.0 is a major release that introduces a proactive scan of contacts to find others who use the service and list them as contacts.

This will raise concerns for some people about privacy, however Microsoft is keen to assure us that this is not an issue. On the Skype blog, Pierre-Eric Jacoupy told users, "As we add this new feature to Android, we remain dedicated to making sure you're in total control of your Skype experience.

"In your settings, you can easily choose whether you want your address book contacts to be automatically added to Skype or not. And don't worry, your number will not be a public part of your profile. You can modify the phone number associated with your account or deactivate it completely, if you don't want to be found by your phone number."
