A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This may be a whole site or simply a single page that's located within a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you shall see a web browser pop-up in which you must input a username as well as a password. If you type the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything else. When the login details aren't correct, however, you will see information that you aren't authorized to look at the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite useful if you wish to prohibit the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you do not want visitors to be able to access it prior to it being ready.
