A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This may be an entire website or just one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to see the content. In case this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
