Are companies like Skype safe for computer users? What risks should users be aware of?
My biggest compliant with Skype right now is the amount of SPAM messages that are popping up when my Skype window is open. While Skype is a great chat tool, I have found in many instances that the voice side is not usable depending on the internet connection available. It is going to be like any other direct communication tool – you can share files, photos, etc. So of course, there is always the risk of viruses and spyware within the files transferred.
