SX User Name Security

SX User Name Security prevents WordPress from showing your real Login by overriding the body_class function, User Nicename, Nickname and Display Name.

WordPress automaticaly uses "User login" to fill in the "User Display Name". WordPress also allows everyone to use the same value for Nickname, Display Name and Login. A hacker can easily see then use your "NickName" or "Display Name" to find your real login. The body_class function also shows to everyone your User ID and Login on author pages.

Once activated, SX User Name Security will prevent WordPress from showing those informations.


Body_class function :

  • Removes User ID from body_class function (author pages)
  • Removes User Nicename from body_class function (author pages)

User informations :

  • The plugin changes "Display Name" and "Nickname" to a random value (like 'Ticibe T. Aduvoguripe', 'Lagubo N. Agigerovibe' or 'Datela N. Orejadavino') if they are equal to user login
  • If not, it changes "Display Name" to "Nickname" or "Nickname" to "Display Name" if one of them is equal to user login

New Registration :

  • Display Name and Nickname are changed to random value during user registration.
  • Nicename is also changed (it's used to generate the user permalink on the front-end). For previous user, a notice has been added to use another plugin to safely change old nicenames. ;)

All functions are translated into french or english.
