A password-protected directory is a folder which can't be accessed unless the proper login details are offered. This can be a whole website or simply one page that is situated in a subfolder. If you try to open this kind of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you will have to type a username as well as a password. If you enter the correct ones, you can continue browsing the content with no need to do anything additional. When the login credentials are not accurate, however, you shall see a message that you aren't authorized to look at the content. When this option is enabled, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is extremely useful if you wish to limit the access to some content or if you are developing a site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
