A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or only one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username and a password. In case you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to see the content. If this option is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite handy if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
