There is a long-time bug related to this ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=723708 ) which causes that the /etc/gdm/custom.conf has no effect.

The closes workaround I find working on Fedora 20 is to totally disable listing of users (run as root):

cat > /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/01-mysettings <<EOF
[org/gnome/login-screen]
disable-user-list=true
EOF

rm /etc/dconf/db/gdm
dconf update
