A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This can be a whole Internet site or simply one page that is located in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will need to enter a username as well as a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without needing to do anything extra. If the login details are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to look at the content. If this feature is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The option is extremely practical if you want to restrict the access to some content or if you work on a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
