Is it possible to protect from "prying eyes" when using Skype?

Have Skype, there is one feature: if you run the program on two computers at the same time, and login under the same user on each computer can
a) to see the whole text conversation which leads the person on the other computer
b) to load conversation history from any source over any time period

The problem is that on running on the second computer copies of Skype, the first computer knows nothing. Because of this, any person who steals the password is invisible for the user to read the current correspondence, and view history. And the story is not since the current password was set, but all of the previous. Plus, a thief can go on Skype in invisible mode, when the owner sleeps, and load a history with being online ever.

Questions I have a few, in order not to produce topics:

1) are there ways to know that the current chat session in the moment someone looks at besides yours?
2) are there ways to know that someone went on Skype during your absence and show the story of someone's you conversations?
3) are there ways to circumvent these threats technical way? (except for drastic — chat on Skype in text mode)

Technical only one way: to set a password type 4?3tIgА_АFFi*YlR60s7Q3Wpd and not a character less!

Alternatively: split the password into three parts, one part record and store on a piece of paper, the second part on electronic media, the third part to remember...:)
\r
PS
And that Skype is not possible to erase the history ??

I'm doing this.
While trying to conduct important correspondence and knowing that somewhere has left me a Skype, I just change the password. Deleted Skype off, like in this case.

After that you can safely obschatstso.

What is interesting — even if the option to put the "do not save history", in the same session she's one hell saved and synced with the rest of the included Skype. Stupid feature really. There would have to be done in the jabber priorities, and remote management from a single account to disable, if necessary, other Skype.

The only option that I'm aware of the definition of another Skype, to get the most out of the Skype call from another Skype itself, the call will be held even if the second Skype in stealth mode, but if anyone in the network that will not work.

You can try to use Skype4Pidgin with any encryption plugin (GPG/OTR)
Minus of this method — s4p should be installed at both sides of the conversation

In the chat you need to enter these commands:

/showplaces Displays a list of the currently online Skype instances using this Skype name (and have Skype version >=6 or recent mobile versions).

in order to see who is logged in

/remotelogout Logs out all other currently online Skype instances which are using this Skype name (and have Skype version >=6 or recent mobile versions).

to kill remote sessions.
