How to hide your IP address from Skype resolvers on Linux

1.Quit Skype

2.Open a terminal and enter

cd /home/{linux username}/.Skype/{skype name}/
(replace
{linux username}
with your Linux username and
{skype name}

with your skype name)

3.Enter

gedit config.xml

in order to open the configuration file

4.Find

<Account>

in the file using

Ctrl+F

5.Enter

<PrivateSkypeMode>1</PrivateSkypeMode>

after
​
<Account>

6.Save the file using
Ctrl+S

7.Restart Skype

If you successfully followed the described steps above, you will notice that Skype resolvers will not be able to resolve your IP address anymore. However, for contacts in your contact list this might still be possible using network packet inspectors like Wireshark.
