Mac Install for local testing

Hi I have MariaDB installed on my Mac. Yet when I try to connect, with Navicat, to it with a blank Password (The default) I get the error:

1698 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'

Not sure what to do here but our web server uses MariaDB and want the exact same on my local testing.

Anybody have any Ideas?

You don't specify version, but are you using unix_socket authentication? See Authentication from MariaDB 10.4.
