Default users phpMyAdmin

Hello,

I'm new to XAMPP and trying to secure the package as much as possible. Tried searching the forum, but couldn't find the answer to my question.

I noticed my installation of phpMyAdmin has the following users:

Are these default users and is it save to remove the selected users? I would like to force the use of a password.

Thanks in advance. :)
