Try setting a password for it using:
Select the Security
item in the menu.
Click on this link:
Set your New Password
MYSQL SECTION: "ROOT" PASSWORD
(No need to enter your old password if you haven't set one already).
Check the Cookie
button as preferred (I choose to use a cookie as my preferred method).
f you are likely to forget your password then click the next entry.
You can always delete this after you are sure your passwords are remembered.
You can optionally create a user/pass for access to the XAMPP files on this page also.
Now your phpMyAdmin will be protected by a user/pass combo
pass: what you set
share the same user/pass combo.
Now go to http://localhost/xampp
again and select the phpMyAdmin
menu item and you will now be asked for your a user/pass.
as the user and add the password you set and all should be secure now for you.
