A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This could be a whole website or only a single page which is located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and also a password. If you type in the appropriate ones, you can continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see information that you aren't allowed to view the content. In case this function is activated, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you wish to limit 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.
