A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the right login details are supplied. This may be an entire website or only a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username and a password. In case you type in the correct ones, you can continue surfing around the content without having to do anything extra. If the login details are not right, however, you'll see a note that you are not permitted to see the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you need to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
