A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the right login details are offered. This can be a whole website or just one page which is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will have to input a username and also a password. If you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue surfing around the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials are not right, however, you will see information that you aren't allowed to see the content. If this option is active, you won't be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is incredibly useful if you'd like to prohibit the access to some content or if you are creating a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
