A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or simply one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to type in a username and also a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not right, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is very handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
