Add the user you want to hide on this line.
On my PC, following user shows up on login screen
This is a user created when installing libvirt. Normally these system added users have uid below 500, that are considered system users and won’t show up. For some reason this user have uid 64055.
root@hon-pc-01:/etc/lightdm# id libvirt-qemu uid=64055(libvirt-qemu) gid=135(kvm) groups=135(kvm) root@hon-pc-01:/etc/lightdm#
Here is the content of my /etc/lightdm/users.conf file
