A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or simply one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. In case the login details aren't accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
