I would like to appoint a second admin so I don't have to do all the work on my board but is it possible to install something so that the other one can't boot me out of the board and denie me all access to the board?

I am assuming you are set up as a Founder in Manage Users.

No user who is not a Founder can affect your account.

It's already built in.

You, as the installer of the board, are a founder (set in the users profile page). You cannot delete a founder account if you are not a founder yourself.

So just make them a regular admin and you're protected.

There are always measures to regain control through the Support Toolkit and database too.
