I have been the victim of identity theft and I don't want my email address to show after I have signed in GMail. I want only the name to appear, as I use laptop in public places.

[foo]2@gmail.com-----name that should appear is Mary Smith

77[pow]@gmail.com-----------name that should appear is John Smith

Since this is a common name, if numbers or an additional h or S on last name. it's ok. If numbers use 77 if available.

Please have this flagged so it doesn't happen again. This was set up this way and only changed recently.

Also want it to appear this way with name only when out of country as well.

This question was merged with Display name instead of email address when logging into Gmail because it is an exact duplicate of that question.
