I was wondering if wireshark could help me monitor and analyze traffic on to my Skype ID.It looks rather silly but it has created a lot of nuisance coz someone had compromised my account few times and the skype customer center did not give me a convincing solution.

Skype traffic is (heavily) encrypted, so you can obviously monitor Skype traffic, but you won't be able to decrypt and read the communication. Sorry.

Thanks for answering the question Kurt , But i still feel if i could find a solution to check whenever specifically login to my Skype ID coz i do understand we cannot monitor Skype network traffic as a whole.
