A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be a whole website or simply a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue surfing around the content without the need to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. If this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is incredibly practical if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
