How do I configure KDE to NOT display (for security reasons) my user name at the login dialog box ?

For that you specify a line 'greeter-hide-users=true' in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
Good luck, Bas

Note that greeter-hide-users by default is set to false.

I changed the variable in the file as you suggested, Bas. It worked after a system restart. Thank you, Bas.

Thank you, Arjen for reminding me to document what I changed in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and why.
