    If you are using Skype to talk with friends while you are playing on CubeCraft , this will be interesting for you :3.

    Skype for the way they work communicates directly with your contacts using your public IP, this is not a problem a priori but are increasingly frequent "attacks" between rival players to "shoot" your connection.

    It is for this reason that we recommend using TeamSpeak (I think the TS is in maintenance) since it is the safest and most convenient way to communicate because it does not expose your public ip. This also occurs in Minecraft, therefore the only place where expose your public IP usually Skype.

    We recommend you enable this option in settings to prevent other Skype users can easily get your IP address to "attack".

    Step 1: Open Skype and connect to our account

    Step 2: We click on the top menu Tools, then Options ..

    Step 3: Open the Advanced panel, then Connection and mark the Allow direct connections only from your contacts.

    We will do this on every computer which we use Skype, this way will be a little difficult to get our public IP that can be used to do this kind of "attacks".

    Now you can feel a little safer.

    Sorry if the images are in Spanish, i couldnĀ“t find English ones.

    Don't get your hopes up, anyone with more than 3 brain cells still knows how to get your IP through Skype. This method DOES work but it's for the kids who just buy a booter and go to skype resolver sites to get your IP there's other alternate ways to get it.

    You do not have to criticize, this is only an option for prevention. Again I say, you may feel a little safer, not totally.

    It wasn't critisizm. It was me just reassuring people that they should know they won't be safe. Coming from factions servers, I've bumped into pretty toxic people. This thread to me is sort of pointless as for there is a cubecraft teamspeak where you can talk freely to the community and friends and make your own channel. Or you can choose to be on an extremely unstable program, you should overall just never use skype unless to add real friends. It's just not worth it to take a risk. It might just be an IP but your IP can lead to all sorts of scary stuff including your address, name, phone numbers, etc. But that's the worst of the community... This is a very serious topic.
