Skype Resolver : Get Skype IP’s behind VPN Tutorial
Step 1. The first step is simple . Get the Skype name of your target . This can either be taken directly via Skype interaction . Or if you are not aware of the skype name but sure that the target is logged in via Skype , and need the IP address , then either Doxing or social engineering can be used .
Once the Skype name has been gathered , Go to skypegrab.net or Link .
