A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This could be a whole website or only a single page that's located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username as well as a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a message that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is extremely useful 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 is ready.
