How to Encrypt a Skype Profile

How to Encrypt a Skype Profile

Skype stores openly all the history of your conversation on your computer. It is quite easy to steal the history files and with the help of some special software one can view all the history without your Skype password.

It is not always convenient to stop saving Skype histories as sometimes you might need to search for some important information there. Besides even if you stop saving Skype history the program will still write all the messages to its database and will delete them only upon quitting. And the events history (who and when you talked to) is never deleted from the database.

Here are some ideas on how to protect a Skype profile (including all the histories) by encrypting the profile, i.e. storing profile files on the encrypted volume or in the encrypted container.

How to Create an Encrypted Container

How to Create an Encrypted Container

An encrypted container is an ordinary encrypted file that can be connected (mounted) to any free volume letter and you can work with such a volume as with a normal one. Sometimes it is called a virtual encrypted volume. All the data written to the volume is automatically encrypted. Any moment the volume is disconnected (unmounted), the access to the data is blocked. Upon system shutdown all the encrypted volumes are automatically unmounted. To re-mount a volume you have to enter the password (and/or key files) that you have specified upon creating the volume. After you mount the encrypted virtual volume all the files on it become accessible and the software will automatically decipher them when reading (encrypt them when writing). A file in the encrypted container can be copied, moved or deleted, i.e. you can handle it as an ordinary file.
