Wait, is bitwarden seriously peddling shit about having a difficult to guess username? They're not passwords, they're nonsensitive handles that are displayed in all social apps ffs...

I would not hire this person to do anything with security.

passwords and two factor are the only things that help with account security and I can't believe we're clouding the topic when we can't even get people to do that

If your password is easier to guess than your username, there's something horribly wrong.

@rune To be fair, there are some risks to user enumeration: it helps attackers find valid accounts that they can go and probe for weak passwords. But the solution to that isn't a strong username, it's a strong password. 🤦
