A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This could be a whole site or just one page that's in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to enter a username and a password. If you enter the appropriate ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything else. When the login credentials aren't correct, however, you shall see information that you are not authorized to see the content. If this feature is activated, you will not be able to open a file even when you have a direct link. The option is quite practical if you wish to prohibit 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 is ready.
