Mysql default characterset utf8 or latin?

I've seen if I create a new database for a new Invision installation, it will be in the utf8mb4_unicode_ci characterset.

However when looking in phpmyadmin the database default characterset at the bottom is still at latin1_swedish_ci and I don't know if that is a good thing, I don't want to get a mixed up database later on.

This is an example:


Do I need to change this latin1 to utf8mb4 and if yes, how can I do this?
