The advancements in technology has made it very easy for us stay in touch with our loved ones. Skype is one of the most famous applications which we use to send messages and video chat with others for personal and professional reasons. Moreover, now you can log in from the same Skype account across multiple devices and continue the same chat. For instance, when you are at home, you can use your Macbook or iPad and when you are travelling you can use your iPhone to send and receive Skype messages.
While the application automatically synchronizes the messages across all the different devices, it is very important to be careful of your privacy. For instance - If you are planning a surprise for your wife and are discussing with your family members and friends from your iPhone when you are at office. The messages will be synchronised with the iPad that might be at home and your wife could involuntarily read the messages and it will no longer be a surprise.
