A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the correct login details are supplied. This may be an entire site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't right, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. When this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely effective if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
