A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login details are provided. This may be a whole website or just one page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you will have to type a username and also a password. In case you input the right ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything extra. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. When this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The feature is extremely handy if you want to prohibit 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 is ready.
