I use the third: "Log into the whatever." However, I use the first one
as well. "The login screen blah blah blah." I do this partly out of
consistency with the software: "Log in screen" doesn't quite convey
the proper message. There is no former tree residing in the monitor.
However, log does have a verb entry in the dictionary and "log into"
seems to be the correct verb/preposition combination to use.
