Remember, it's free to download Skype for your computer
A small number of websites claim to offer Skype downloads for a fee. Skype is free to download for your computer, and you should be suspicious of any website which requests money in exchange for a Skype download.
You can always find the latest version of Skype from our download page – check that your browser’s address bar says skype.com, or skype.tom.com in China.
Skype will tell you when a major update is available, and you should be wary of any email pretending to be from Skype saying a security update is available. We will never do this. Information regarding updates to the Skype software can always be found on the downloads section of our website.
