You're seeing other users databases in the db admin tool because those users (against security best practices) have enabled a GUEST user account on their database. As such, you can SEE it via the db admin... however, should also notice that you can't actually access the databases, to browse/view/modify data.

To prevent your db from being seen like this from other users, do not create a GUEST user for your database. Usually the way this occurs is that you created the database on your system, which guest access... then if you uploaded a backup of that db for us to restore, the guest access was then created on the database on our system (from the user's restored db).
