Skype is a software application that allows users to instant message, voice chat and video chat with each other. Skype is free but has paid options to allow the user to call phones, send texts and/or access Wifi, Skype is available on most computers, mobile devices, tablets and TVs. It is known for having good quality web cam streams.
Typically, cam girls use Skype to interact with and/or perform shows for paying clients.
Use a separate cam girl Skype account as opposed to using the same Skype account you use with your personal friends and family. Also, understand that, once you create a Skype username, it can never be deleted. You can abandon it but the Skype username can never be deleted.
It is very important to understand that, through the use of a Skype Resolver, a user can obtain your IP address and thus a general location of where you are actually located. There are many free, online Skype Resolvers. It is best to assume that, by using Skype, you are okay with someone finding out your general location.
However, if you use a VPN, you are able to hide your real location. When someone tries to Skype Resolve your Skype username, it will show a location that is not yours. It is best to obtain a paid VPN service for this to work properly. It is not recommended to go with a free VPN service, as they can be unreliable.
- Skype is a popular tool for many independent cam girls. Such services for cam girls to advertise that they do Skype shows include CamModelDirectory and SkyPrivate.
- Skype can also be a tool for cam girls as well, assuming the cam site allows for off site contact. One popular cam site where Skype shows are allowed is MyFreeCams. A model can advertise that she does Skype shows (for tokens) on her MFC profile, for example.
- Cam girls can also advertise that they do Skype shows through their social media accounts and/or websites.
Always receive payment before performing in a Skype Show. Never agree to be paid after a show. Many guys will claim that a model has scammed them by taking their tokens for a Skype show and then not performing the show. A model should absolutely stand her ground and not perform a show on Skype without receiving payment first. This cannot be over stated.
Be aware that many guys try to lure cam girls into using Skype, in the name of Skype's better camming quality, as a way to avoid paying through the camming website's per minute rate for a private. This is usually to try to pay a lower fee per minute or to try to haggle you to perform longer than agreed upon, or perform certain acts that are not within the rules of the cam site. Worse yet, it can be to try to scam the model out of payment all together. See scams for more information on the risks of off-site payments.
