A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be an entire site or only a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you try to open this sort of a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username and a password. If you enter the correct ones, you will be able to continue browsing the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't accurate, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to see the content. In case this function is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you wish to prohibit 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.
