A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be an entire site or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. If you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login details aren't right, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to see the content. If this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is incredibly handy if you want 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 is ready.
