Option to unable user list of PCDM

I'd like to have to type in my user name at the login screen of PCDM as well.

At the moment there is this user list which shows all available users.

I think there would be an additional bit of security if one could switch that off so that no one can see which user names are available. So, if someone wanted to "hack" into an account he had to start with guessing user names, too, not "just" passwords.
Also, no one could guess who's pc/laptop it is by looking at the (in this case not present) user list.
