Hello Goofy231,

Welcome to Skype Community!

I know how important this is for you. Let me provide you needed information.

With the new Skype for iOS, we automatically set your status for you. When you are signed in you will show online, with a green dot in the Chats screen.

And in a specific chat, your status will show ACTIVE NOW. When you are signed out or offline, your status will show LAST SEEN and how long ago you were online.

If you would prefer to hide your presence status completely, you can change this in your profile settings to make yourself invisible. Tap your profile picture > Tap the Settings button > Tap Privacy > then you can toggle Show my presence to others on or off.
