A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are supplied. This could be an entire website or simply a single page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you'll see a browser pop-up in which you must input a username as well as a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue surfing around the content without needing to do anything additional. When the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a message that you are not authorized to look at the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The feature is quite useful if you want to limit 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.
