    I've tried googling user enumeration and reading what this plugin says and even installing it to see what this does but no results...

    I'm clueless at what I'm supposed to be seeing that this plugin adds of security.

    I thought this is the same plugin as this one:

    User enumeration is a well know technique to expose usernames, this plugin stops this.
    It solves a different issue to username security.

    Google does give a lot of information on username enumeration, however this blog post explains it in simple terms http://llocally.com/blog/2013/08/19/what-is-your-login-username-to-your-wordpress-website/
