    Hey guys, I just used my Android phone to login to Skype on a friend's WiFi connection. Is it possible for my friend to see my Skype username and password or see that I tried to use Skype?

    Thank you!

    He can't see your username or password, but he can see an unusual connection, type of device and a device identifier number. It's not nice to access someone's wifi without permission.

    True. However, it's even worse to have an unprotected wifi network that anyone, including bad guys, can access. :eek: So perhaps the OP has done his friend a favor by letting him know that anyone can use his wifi without a password.
