This is a very good point, and it is something I am concerned with as well. It would be safer to log in with an e-mail address as well as the account name and password. Your e-mail address can be hidden from others, but not your account name. Has anyone put this concern in the Feedback forum? This is not the right forum for this topic.

That is very simple, yes. I apparently was dumb. I will look into changing this. Thank you for pointing this out!
