A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This may be an entire site or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you will have to input a username as well as a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything more. If the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you shall see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite useful if you need to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
