A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be a whole website or just one page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you will need to enter a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. If the login details are not correct, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. When this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
