    19 WordPress uses the pattern example.com/author/name for author page URLs where 'name' represents the users login name. This means that the login names from all your users are publicly visible which is a serious security flaw. The smart User Slug Hider Plugin changes all author page URLs from e.g. example.com/author/john to something like example.com/author/e9e716def73f76ac. The codes are generated automatically and its impossible to make conclusions about the user names. The WordPress default URLs (like example.com/author/admin) will cause a 404 (not found) error.  There are no settings and no need to change anything. Just install and forget. The plugin does not make any changes to your database. Deactivating the Plugin restores the default WordPress behavior.
