A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are supplied. This may be a whole website or just a single page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up where you will need to type a username and a password. In case you input the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without the need to do anything extra. If the login details are not right, however, you'll see a note that you aren't permitted to look at the content. In case this function is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely effective if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it is ready.
