Hello! We are using Skype really frequently, because we thought it to be the safest and the most secure platform for VoIP communications. And we really need to know is it possible to find talker's IP in Skype? And is it really dangerous?

As you probably know, Skype is the so called p2p VoIP application, which means that it uses Internet connection to transmit voice packages, which are encrypted. And as long as it is p2p, it will try to establish the shortest connection between the talkers, so if your talker has a static IP, you can easily find it with a simple traffic analyzer. Bu things will get harder if your talker uses VPN or at least a proxy.
But we at jammer-store.com may tell you that there are literary millions of services on the web, which will make it easy to locate your talker. And that is really dangerous, because Skype always uses the same port at the device, and even if your IP will change – it will be still known to the people, who try to track you. And your IP address leads to your physical location and that may be used for tracking.
Anyway, Skype becomes a really dangerous app, since the owner has changed, those tracking issues all together with recent Skype eavesdropping issues may give you a full picture. So we do not recommend to use Skype for discussing sensitive topics, and it will be better to avoid installing it on your smartphone, because it may use modern smartphones's vulnerabilities to track your location, or even eavesdrop your calls and intercept messages. In that case it would be even better to use mobile Internet signal blocker, to avoid tracking and eavesdropping.
Thank you for your question, I hope, I've managed to help!
