A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are supplied. This could be an entire site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a browser pop-up where you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you input the right ones, you can continue surfing around the content with no need to do anything additional. If the login credentials are not accurate, however, you'll see a note that you are not allowed to look at the content. If this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is quite 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.
