Reproducing the Issue

It is not possible to change this verbiage.

Any changes to the Login Page need to be done by creating and uploading a custom HTML login page on back-end (Provisioning).

See KBA 2088153 on how to create Custom Login Page.

However it is also not possible to change the username in a custom login page as the "username" is not included in the list of special token allowed.
