Your list only accepts an instance of "NameValuePair". Is a string an instance of NameValuePair? No. So you can't put a string in it.

This line means that:
The list stores objects of type NameValuePair class, so you can't add any other objects of another type.

data.add(new BasicNameValuePair("username", username));
data.add(new BasicNameValuePair("password", password));
