A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the right login credentials are supplied. This could be a whole Internet site or just one page that is in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this sort of a directory, you'll see an Internet browser pop-up in which you must enter a username as well as a password. In case you input the correct ones, you can continue exploring the content without having to do anything additional. If the login details aren't accurate, however, you'll see information that you are not authorized to view the content. In case this option is enabled, you won't be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is quite useful if you wish to restrict the access to some content or if you work on an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
