    As a web developer I have many websites out there and recently a client’s site was hacked into. The mess that resulted required a complete rebuild. I would not want to go through that again. I already use ‘login limited reload’ and ‘two-factor’ log in so I must be fairly safe but it was irritating me that hackers can so easily find a username.

    Not any longer thanks to this plug in. Just activate and you’re there but don’t forget to change your WordPress display name so it does not show your username in the source code.

    Thank you Peter.

    EDIT

    It pains me to have to reduce my five star review to one star but the fact is that this plugin no longer works but actually reveals the username. I’ve tried to get the author’s attention with a support question but no reply within three days and I see no update to this plugin in the last six months. It’s a shame because it did work very well indeed. I won’t give exact details of how the name is revealed although I suspect any hacker worth his salt will soon determine the answer.

    I hope the author will read this and let me have an email address where I can forward full details to him.
