A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be an entire website or just one page that's located within a subfolder. If you try to open this type of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username as well as a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything else. In case the login details are not correct, however, you'll see a note that you aren't allowed to look at 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 feature is incredibly effective if you want 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.
