    hello,
    in the posts, the authors name appears in the footer. the name is a link to something like an "authors page".
    searching my webpage with google, this authors page appears in the results, too.
    the address of the page is

    http://www.xxyyzz.com/author/"username"

    wordpress doesn't allow to change the username, but i don't want it to appear anywhere.

    so i would have two questions

    - is there a way to change the address of the page?
    - is there a way to hide or completely delete the author page, so it cannot appear anywhere?

    would be great to find help!
    thank you in advance
    best
    matís

    I have the same problem. Almost anyone can easily find your user/login name and attempt logins with it. The whole point is to have a secret login name and a secret password. Is there a fix for this?
