    function my_plugin_options_page() {

        global $options;

        if( !current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) {
            wp_die( 'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.' );

        if( isset( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field'] ) ) {           
            $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_username'] );
            $options = ['my_plugin_username'=>$my_plugin_username, 'last_updated'=>time()];
