User Accounts Security
Detect if there is a user account which has the default “admin” username and easily change the username to a value of your choice.
The plugin will also detect if you have any WordPress user accounts which have identical login and display names. Having account’s where display name is identical to login name is bad security practice because you are making it 50% easier for hackers because they already know the login name.
