I'm here to give you a small tutorial on how you can stop people from resolving your IP via Skype. Basically what this does is this will stop skype resolvers from getting your real IP. The IP that shows will be for Microsoft, Cogent, HE or some other trunk internet provider. So as long as you don't take calls from bad people / block them/delete them, your IP is safe.

This tutorial will make your Internet experience safer and dox free.

Let's go to our Skype and go to Tools --> Options.
Head on over to Advanced --> Connection

Tick the box that says "Allow direct connections to your contacts only" This makes it so that only people you've accepted to your contacts can contact you. Meaning your IP address is no longer grab-able to the public.
You should be good to go. If your IP is already resolved... Turn off your router overnight and you'll be assigned a new one!
Thanks for Reading !
