As I said above post you partially hide our email in our accounts <- why for this and not for logging into RSOF??
The reason why our emails are partially hidden is because your registered email address is extremely important to your RuneScape account. You need your registered email address to update your password, to disable the Authenticator, to receive emails from Jagex and to update said registered email address. This is why it's hidden: it's a crucial part of your RuneScape account and needed for the most important steps into securing such account.

I am sure you wouldn't want anyone knowing your registered email address because that's a step closer to hijacking it and ultimately stealing your RuneScape account. If someone has full access to your registered email address, then they can change anything on your RuneScape account without restrictions.

As for why our name are hidden in-game and not on the RSOFs, this has already been stated many times by different people, including Mod Lyon. Streamers are prone to hijacks attempts due to their popularity and account levels/skills. It was designed to give them protection against hijackers. At any given time, these streams are being watched by hundreds and maybe thousands of people. According to probability, the chances of someone being a hijacker among those viewers are very high and they are always on the lookout for fragile information.

Furthermore, I highly doubt that at any given time you are being watched by hundreds or thousands of people while trying to log into the Forums. If that worries you, then you should do what I do: I log into the game first and then I click on my "Message Centre" so that I am automatically logged into the Forums. I don't have to log in separately. I do this all the time.

All in all, I personally don't see a benefit to hiding our usernames while logging into the RSOFs.

But the hiding option does literally nothing? As Hmm mentioned, for most websites, usernames are public information, covering it isn't going to make it less public. This kind of cover up only hides it from other people who are viewing your screen. °l||l° Modest Skillers T7 Citadel | Skilling clan recruiting players. °l||l°

I have two usernames on some of my accounts, a log in name and a user name <- this is a forum of security. Most if not all players would not know my login name - They only know my user name/s I have used over the years I have played RS. Unless I have something tracking my every move on my pc/phone or Jagex has given information away, no one would know the login name - not having it hidden is jeopardising this.
