Skype is an excellent tool to keep in touch with family and friends, but some users reported that Skype keeps asking them for a password.

Here’s how one user described this problem on Microsoft Answers forum:

I’m using skype for quite a long time. It was working fine but after the latest update of skype, it keeps on asking for password again and again even though I have entered correct password because it is working on web version of skype. I have tried every possible solution even tried re-installation of skype but the problem is still there. I even tried changing my windows defender settings but nothing different happened.

Fortunately, Microsoft has taken cognizance of the issue and has already bundled the solution in the latest version of the communicating platform.
