Great news for streamers as Skype has released a new update specifically targeting gamers and streamers. The latest Skype update now hides your IP address by default. The Skype team said..
“Starting with this update to Skype and moving forward, your IP address will be kept hidden from Skype users. This measure will help prevent individuals from obtaining a Skype ID and resolving to an IP address.”
Gamers and streamers have been the target to DDos attacks and swatting for quite some time and this is a huge step forward in eliminating these kinds of incidents.
