Hi,

 

The reason as to why your email is being shown is because you have set your Wordpress username as your email address. You should never use your email address as a username for this very reason.

Therefore, I think the best course of action is for you to either add a Display name in your Wordpress profile or create a new user, make them an admin and do not have their username set as an email address.
