I have a feeling it means your ThemeForest password.

Just to stop someone finding you still logged into the site on a public PC, changing the PayPal and stealing your money ;)

I thought that, but it seemed to let me edit the paypal id without putting in any password

@Daniel – That could be indeed a source of trouble and does look decidedly fishy. As Dan mentioned, your ThemeForest password is what we meant. Need to make that a little more clear otherwise it looks like we are harvesting paypal account details :O

As I understand you are able edit the payment address even with the wrong password. Can you confirm? Putting in the wrong password gives me this error:

“The password you entered was incorrect, please supply your current FlashDen password”

(Another mention of FlashDen! Grrrrr – Hard to get rid of them all)

Just tried it again, and it doesn’t do it anymore.

maybe the first time it lets you do it without a password? still, thats a potential flaw.
