When installing a Windows Server OS I always rename the Administrator account to an individual name.

"Admin", "admin" and "Administrator" are well-known user names that hackers use first when trying to attack a system.

My ATP100 does not allow me to rename or delete the standard "admin" account.
I can just change the password.

It would be more secure if I could just name my own admin account.

Then a hacker has to guess the username and password. Currently a hacker can just focus on the password because the Administrator account always is "admin".

    All you have to do is make admin with a long password

    For sure I know that a long password will be more secure.

    But it would be even more secure when a hacker has also to discover the username and not just only the password.
