When user name is a number, what is the correct name for label?

When we use an email + password to login, the label can be named USERNAME or EMAIL.

But in my case, the username is a number - actually the id of employee in the company, something like 856974.

I think "user name" is not correct to label.


  • How is it called when users recieve their number?

User ID

Employee ID


Account ID

Something like that


Either User number (Something along the lines of Social Security number, or Roll Number)

or User Id (something along the lines of Employee Id)

I am assuming that the question is in the context of a registration form, not profile view
