  • Question

  • When I send messages from my mobile device the recipient sees my name and it has the word "Mobile" next to it. How do I turn that off so they don't see the word mobile? Thanks!

  • Hi BSI68,

    I’m afraid that it is impossible to remove or hide the word “Mobile”. This is by design.

    In my test, I found the following results.

    If your status is only available when you are signing in mobile device, it won’t show “Mobile”. However, when in other status, it shows “Mobile”.

    If you are signing in both mobile and desktop clients, it won’t show “Mobile”.

    We highly recommend you give a feedback in Skype for Business UserVoice( The link is: https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/suggestions/15969928-hide-remove-mobile-status-when-using-skype-on). Your kindly feedback will improve your experience with our product.

    Thanks for your understanding.
