A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This could be a whole Internet site or just one page that's situated in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to input a username and also a password. If you type in the correct ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. If the login credentials aren't correct, however, you will see information that you are not allowed to see the content. When this option is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The feature is incredibly useful if you'd like to prohibit 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 prior to it being ready.
