First method, how to change your status to invisible before login to skype.

Disconnect your internet access after 0.5 - 1 second you enter your login details in a skype authorization window. The essence of this method is to log in to microsoft server but do not send your status information.

Number Status
6 Invisible
5 Do not disturb
3 Away
2 Online
1 Offline
