A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or simply one page that is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and a password. If you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login credentials are not correct, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
