    Should/can I remove the install directory after installation? Or is it needed for something? Is there any security risk in leaving it there?

    There is no security risk. You may remove it if you wish, but if you ever need to rebuild master data, you will need to upload it again.

    The development team would quickly fix it.

    Just password protect it using .htaccess (or in your nginx config file).
