If you are using lightdm, you can try in Settings-LightDM GTK+Greeter Settings- Appearance and change the font and/or the DPI settings

I changed the font size to 36 which changed the size of the password box but not the username box. It is still real small.

You could set a higher DPI in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:

xft-dpi = 192

see above. It is under “additional font options”

It might be the Ubuntu font(s). You could try by removing them. Not sure if it will affect anything else though.
