How to Track a Skype Number (4 Steps)

By Garrett Genet

You can track a Skype number through the Skype client itself, or you can access a more thorough history for an account on Skype's website. You'll need a subscription to Skype to have your calls logged; Skype's system does not keep track of Skype calls made to other users. A Skype-to-Skype call history is only kept on the computer that those calls are made to.

Step 1

Start Skype and log in to your account.

Step 2

Accept or reject the incoming call from a Skype number. It will be listed in the window that pops up on your screen. There is no way for you to tell whether the call is coming from a Skype number, unless the user has only paid for outgoing calls or hidden his number from caller ID. In this case, it will appear as "01234567890" or something similar.

Step 3

Click the "Recent" tab in your contacts list. You can see all of your recent conversations, which includes phone calls made and received.

Step 4

Click "View Call History." This list tracks all of the calls you have made to and from your Skype account.
