A password-protected directory is a folder which cannot be accessed unless the correct login credentials are offered. This can be an entire site or just one page that's located in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up where you must type a username and a password. In case you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content without needing to do anything extra. When the login details are not right, however, you'll see information that you aren't permitted to view the content. In case this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is quite effective if you wish 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 prior to it being ready.
