A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login details are provided. This can be an entire Internet site or simply a single page which is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. In case you enter the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything more. In case the login credentials are not right, however, you will see information that you are not permitted to see the content. If this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly practical if you want to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
