You just need to store the userid somewhere that is accessible from the second screen.
Or store the userid and pass it to the second screen when you need to display it.

... or store it in a static variable - then it will be global for the whole application:
public class MyClass {
public static String user = "user1";
.....
}

set it by using:
MyClass.user = "new_user";

and get it:
String user = MyClass.user;

How is that different than:

"You just need to store the userid somewhere that is accessible from the second screen"
