A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This may be an entire site or only a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up where you have to input a username and a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything else. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to view the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you want to limit 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.
