A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This could be a whole website or only one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username and also a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to view the content. When this function is activated, you will not be able to open a file even if 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 developing a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
