Stop 2014 Skype Automatic File Transfer

Skype 2014 Automatic File Transfer.
The new Skype, the default is to accept files sent to you automatically, without your acceptance. This is great if all you have on your Skype are your trusted people. But even trusted people could send you bad files. WHat if your trusted friends computer is infected with some kind of Skype worm. So we think it is better to make sure you approve what you get and where to save them, even if you did ask for the file.
To change your settings for automatic file transfer:

  1. Open Skype.
  2. In the menu bar, click on Tools > Options…
  3. Click on IM & SMS
  4. In the IM settings pane, scroll down to When I receive a file…
Select an option for your transferred files’ location and uncheck Automatically accept incoming files.
You will be a bit safer.
