A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole Internet site or just a single page that is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. In case the login credentials aren't right, however, you shall see a note that you aren't allowed to look at the content. In case this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is very useful if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
