Can we show the player PlayFabId in leaderboard? Is that secure?

Hello! Im creating a leaderboard in Unity, and im facing a problem when some logged users don't have a Display Name. Is secure to show the PlayFabId (public) in the leaderboard in case the player don't have a Display Name?

I believe it is safe, because client API’s capability is very limited and most of the jobs can be done only impact itself. It will be unsafe only when you have some Cloud Script function that receives a PlayFab ID as a parameter to make data changes meanwhile it doesn’t have any verification procedure. Hence, in most of the cases, it is safe. Besides, if you concern about the looking of those IDs, you may get leaderboard in the cloud script and pre-format it before returning to the player.
