Following some downtime yesterday, Skype issued an update that fixes a glitch in its Windows version that locked out some of its customers.

The company said it will release a fix for Macs today — though the more technically inclined can follow instructions posted on its site Thursday.

To get the Windows solution, simply download the latest version of Skype.

While Windows, Mac and Linux users were hit by the bug, those using Skype on their phones and televisions should not have been affected.
