A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login credentials are offered. This could be an entire Internet site or simply one page which is located within a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you will see an Internet browser pop-up in which you will need to type a username and a password. In case you type the appropriate ones, you will be able to continue exploring the content without the need to do anything more. If the login details aren't correct, however, you shall see a note that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this option is activated, you won't be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you'd like to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a website and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
