    Reply To: Remove author page with username in it, security risk?, by Balint Toth

    That is a default functionality of WordPress. Most of the times the author page is used to list all posts created by the specific author, or to display some pieces of information about a user. What gets displayed depends on the theme.

    Based on your posts, I guess you are somewhat familiar with touching the PHP code, so here is a quick tip for you. You could create a redirect, so if somebody visits any author page, then he or she gets a 404 error. Here is an article about that:

    As the article says, you have two possibilities here. You can show a 404 page, or you can automatically redirect to a page, by default the home page. If you have any questions about this, I am happy to help
