A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are offered. This may be an entire website or only one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type in a username and also a password. In case you input the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't right, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
