i found flatboard on Google.
i downloaded this software, and ran it on my local computer to test it out.
i liked it, so i kept it to use for a future website.

the next day, it said i logged in from a dell inspiron that was in sweden!?
then, a few hours later, it wasn't accepting my password and when i tried to change it, it asked for security questions i had never set..
the phone number is set to +46 771 831 4727 and the backup email is mikaelanders@gmail.com..
....

my account was hacked. i think flatboard has a backdoor in it that steals the password. do not use this software.

Obviously, you are running in on a local computer, you have no security at all, that is why it is easy to access since you do need a webserver. This means PHP encryption won't work unless you have an SSL certificate. So someone hacked into your computer and mess with it. Also I don't think flatboard uses security questions.

SurveyBuilder-Admin is absolutely correct.
Flatboard does not use security questions or log your location.
Regarding backups, you must install the Backup plugin which last does not use any email to be able to use it.

What do backups have to do with this?

erikjohnson,
1. yes someone can hack into a localhost since it is using you PC server(So if someone can hack your PC, then can access the localhost server).
2. what does your gmail have to do with any of this? Flatboard doesn't require email address
3. You seem like you need to backup the software, so that's why @Fred said to use the backup plugin so you can reupload it if something went wrong

Wow..
I didn't know the community couldn't understand anything.

My Gmail password is saved on my computer, so through localhost, someone got into my PC and stole my google password.
And I know it's flatboard's fault because I have opened many things on localhost, and they haven't been hacked.
