    So I just realized that you have this turned on by default when really I feel it should be turned off & ONLY turned on if you need it.

    This is a security risk because now people can see your user names so they can better try to hack you.

    Thanks

    It’s not a security risk. Your username isn’t the part you protect it’s the password that needs to remain secret.

    If that were the case, then all of the security experts would see NO problem with using Admin as a user name.

    Why give them more ammunition, that makes no sense. You are just making things easier for the hackers.
