A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are provided. This can be an entire site or simply one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username as well as a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a message that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
