I agree but discourage anybody to actually use the noun login in front
of the user.

"Please log in with your login and password" - No, I think username is
more user-friendly, as a compound noun or a two word phrase.

"Your last login was on:" would be better as "You last logged in on:"
in my opinion.  If I wanted to show the time the user currently logged
in, I would never say "Your login was at:", but would say "You logged
in at:".

"We had x logins today" would be fine, but sounds like slang to me, I
suppose I just don't like the noun anywhere.
