Author usernames in meta information?

Asked by Mike Cleek
Posted November 1, 2013.

Google SERPs are showing usernames rather than Display Names. So the hit on Google will say “by: admin” rather than “by: Editor” or other. This gives people our usernames and then they can just hack the password instead of trying to figure both out. Is there a way to hide the username from Google? Why is this information passed on in the meta data?
