    Remove author page with username in it, security risk?, by cschultzie3

    Made what I’m assuming is a rookie mistake on a website I’m just starting, I have a mydomain.com/author/MyWordPressUsername. I figured out how to change it so on the page itself it lists my account’s display name rather than the actual username, but I’m very paranoid that my actual username is still in this URL. How can I delete that page permanently?

    also, should I make a different account somehow since my username is now out in public? although i’m not sure how to avoid doing the same thing if I did make a new username
