A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire site or simply a single page that is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to enter a username as well as a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. In case this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
