Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When you create the account, it should give you the option to create a password.  Now, to select a good one, make sure that it is more than eight characters long, has numbers, special characters, and at least two uppercase letters.

    Create a password that is long enough and complex enough that it won't be guessed or hacked. -- Tom

    Securing your 'username' is different from having a secure password or securing your 'account'. Which are you trying to do? You can also obfuscate your username by using your initials or something else that doesn't identify you. In Windows, there's a setting to keep the OS from not displaying your user account on the login screen and suspect that OS X has this as well.
