A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This may be an entire website or only one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will need to type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything extra. When the login details are not accurate, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this function is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
