A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the correct login credentials are provided. This could be an entire website or only one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you must type in a username and also a password. In case you enter the right ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details are not accurate, however, you will see a note that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this option 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 wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
